Tree

If you don’t hear
the sound
of a tree falling
in the woods,
might it still stand?

If you don’t hear
the news
of a fall, a procedure,
convalescence,
might the loved one
remain firm,
unfallen,
awaiting your call?

If a tree falls
in the woods
and makes no sound,
does it know
you weren’t there?
