The Tree Outside
Above the window sill
the minuscule stippled leaves
dance in the breeze
cut by the window sill
as if as if—
By inner eye we know
the tree to be intact
Trunk reaches down to roots
where the atoms come from
roots and trunk
spread into sky
the vital breath
that sustains us

ABOUT LIT ANGELS
This book is Margaret's elegant, wise, and worldly oeuvre - a distilled reflection of her sagesse and sophistication. Enjoy it!
~ Mani Suri
Like her photography, Ute’s poems breathe movement, shadow and light that immediately transports the reader to the experience of moving within the social fabric of her woven words.
~ Virginia Jasmin Pasalo, poet, editor of "The Tree Anthology," Manila, the Philippines
The poetics of Margaret Saine is a pleasant flight, ranging back and forth between sigifiers and the signified, giudiciously exploring art and nature. Each element is endowed with meaning, connecting it with human presence and human feeling. Under the poet’s gaze, a movement in time occurs that returns it to us, it tells us of other voices who are leaving traces in personal and universal history. An interesting, marvelous exchange occurs between the forms of being and their most profound abode, like a window to the sun, opening and smiling at us.
~ Rita Stanzione, poet and science instructor, Salerno, Italy
