Ginkgo

Ginkgo biloba,
Your name itself promises,
Something special.

160m years
You have grown slowly, surely ~
Intermediate.

I imagine you,
Surviving the attention,
of Ornithopods.

I clear Cotinus,
To allow expression ~
Our living fossil.

An uncle’s sure gift,
When we move, you will also;
Won’t leave you behind.
