What is Held in the Banyan

And if I could have any wish

My wish that day would be

For the vines to wrap around my chest

That day I stood under the banyan

For if I could have been held in it

Maybe I could stay

Instead of getting just a glimpse of it

Of what is held in the banyan

The depth of green

The quiet in sound

The beauty of her pattern

Breaking up

Yet flowing free

Eternity is held in the banyan.
