Dewdrops and Lilies   Leave a comment

Mountain valleys filled
 With ghosts of burning trees, young
Lilies holding hope

moon descending in clouds

Moon melting, sliding
Behind, between, and beyond
Exhale . . . and it’s gone

Feather in blue sky

Bridging our worlds
Snagging heaven between stops
A drifting feather

Aspen in sky

Long reach of aspen
Still bearing shepherd’s voices
Silence, scars, and sage

solemn words

Guests of all magnitudes know they’re welcome in this unshuttered home–

dust motes and moon-rays, snakes, bats, and midnight moths.

Seasoned scents of river grass and smoke never need knock on the unhinged door

before drifting among dry summer nests hidden in walls, crumpled on floors.

Crackling sun, ponderous snow and wild torrents of wind bring this old place,

year after year, closer to original grace, to center of our rocky jewel,

merged and at one with this lovely World.

Grateful, gray-boned trees
