Way in the Woods

Watching the waters

Here

where these hidden falls have rushed

the First Ones must have come

and tumbled,

as guests among foxes,

endless and clear—

the many-voiced birds,

rushed and tumbled

the coyote and deer,

for moons beyond counting

to fill their tight baskets

to fill these soft woods

with a sweet clear water

with a violent wealth—

and feel—

I whisper,

while watching these waters

awed and assured,

rush and tumble—

"I am one...

connected,

I am all...

quiet,

I am something very small..."

... alive.
