Three Copper Beech Trees

In the midafternoon summer sun
Leaves seen from below are pink-red approximate circles
Like fingertips underlit by torchlight
It is as if blood has been made solid and flat
And through something like transubstantiation
Ten thousand leafs are filled with divine luminscence,
Creating a beautiful blood canopy.
