Tree Poem Week–#4: El Guanacaste

Ear Tree

be careful what you say
the guanacastes are
listening

you could mistake them for
dead in early march with
those seed pods on naked branches

their name means “Ear Tree” in
a language none of us speak but
don’t let that fool you

Guanacaste with seed pods, getting new leaves
