Punctuation For A 45-Year Pause

An old oak, gnarled in
Mid-shrug, accepts
Our climb and joins
Me in memory--
Friends, a tree, a
Sunlit inch in time.

Pointy message writ
In runic toolrack appears
To recommend rakes
For Nordic debris.
This from prehistory
Involves raven knees,
Yggdrasil leaves, wind.
Blowing away what was
Is what wind does,
And I believe
This one means pitchfork.
I need a pitchfork?

January One

Perfected in light
And darkness as
When life first
Found it, dawn
And dusk encircled
Earth and midnight
Moved around it.
