~~~

Tree bark, buried soil

the snow catches the pine boughs

wind-blown like sand dunes.

~~~

Elk track through the trees

gentle dimples for white flesh,

my eyes are too late.

~~~

Abandon your boots

let wet laces paint the floor

let the floor melt too.

~~~

Ice on the window,

look harder, laid crystal bones

crawling thick with need.

~~~

Fish in the pine creek

lend your line of hunger,

watch the surface dance.

~~~

Gold light winks, leads me

to crystalline blood of you,

dark and wounded pine.

~~~

I took a wild path

found the sun caught in dead tree,

yet how nothing burned.

~~~

Mountain goat of white

grazes calm in the alpine

where the wind does not.

~~~

Run through the desert

and find on red canyon walls

paint of living hands.

~~~

There’s a lonely tree

in the midst of meadow grass—

how it stares at me.

~~~
