a kangaroo is in the sky

a kangaroo is in the sky
the moon is in the water
a tree is inside me

it is family
standing grounded
always growing

I am wooden
my stance as limbs
a message to my kin

see me in my form
ask my story
read my bark

sit in my shade
look for the moon
in the water

climb into me
look at the sky
a kangaroo is there
