around here is us, now
I knew it when I saw it
like coming home in a cowboy song
nostalgia circles in like smoke
and becomes solid
a sturdy memory loops
a lean year
and then there at the very centre
where I knew it would be
such a tiny seed

About the Bonsai
This Ginko biloba otherwise known as the Maidenhair tree is an ancient species of tree found in fossils 270 million years ago. It is one of a few decidious conifers.
The Ginko was thought to have been extinct until being 'rediscovered' in China in the 17th Century. Extracts from the leaves are used in traditional medicine. This bonsai is being grown towards the 'literati' or 'bunjin' style.
