Naked reflections

Reflection of leafless tree in a stream on foggy morning

Naked reflections

In the reflected streamwater,
they saw that,
once again,
they were naked.

They had felt the undressing
as their leaves fell away,
but the full realization
came in that mirrored water.

Being used to this annual
event, they weren’t ashamed—
not after growing mature after
being teased as saplings.

But with the chilly wind arriving,
they shivered and huddled
within themselves.

Reflections of trees in stream with leaf on surface
