Unfolding Sharply

Along a horizontal tree, mossed and mushed by deer
I lay stretched out on bundled brown leaves
balancing along it, arms out, a sticky branch arrowed my heart
a moment of conception
looking up broken bare branches reached like bursting cells
swinging to a branch I dangled and feeling my knees bend and body long
became the comma
reaching through the twisting branches held by ribs I floated legs and arms
held in a birthing tree
between here and there
seeing the snowdrops
