leave your words at home.
Instead, join me in the ecstasy of solitude.
Leave your feet of clay
the book you just read
to the soprano trill of a chipping sparrow stippling the air
the bark of crows
the belch of bullfrogs from their emerald pond.
Float with clouds lumbering overhead
the Red-tailed hawk, hanging,
for an instant, goddess of her universe
content in time.
If you walk in the woods with me
Leave your watch at home
and surrender to Wonder.
Enter the eternity of soil
the promise of life everlasting
