Mantras by the river
The smoke rises
Fish jump
The serpent crawls up my back
Vultures circle as the sun sets

By the cabin
The rock goes deep
See the layers bending
Yielding to time
A twisted dry root emerges

The trees are awake

On the hill a pine has invited me
Concealed and nestled me at her feet
Shrouded by her needles
Dark secure

A voice begins to sing
Soothing, warm
Like the tears in my eyes
Caressed by happiness
Everything is clear

You are here

I step out
Into your full glory
A hole into the day
Your light illuminates my insides
I am speechless
I am in love
I bow to you
