From Robin Robertson:

March 8, 2017

Her long body in the spangled shade of the wood

was a swimmer moving through a pool:

fractal, finned by leaf and light;

the loose plates of lozenge and rhombus

wobbling coins of sunlight.

When she stopped, the water stopped,

and the sun re-made her as a tree,

banded and freckled and foxed.
