A Cypress In His Own Right

A Cypress In His Own Right

written by: Lali Tsipi Michaeli

translated by: Michael Simkin


I remember a cone shaped cypress
Reaching the sky
I remember
And then I am cut short
But in the distance
The cypress continues
To grow and to shrink
And the house shrivels
And the whole yard which enveloped
The epoch
And a big playing field for
A girl torn out
Before growing up
A cypress in his own right
Roots & roots
Promising to lift up
