A Walk to Remember

morning light falls slant
snow-patches glinting in sunlight
our journey begins

***

half water, half ice
six geese walking on the pond
done fishing for now

***

brook-stones form a bridge
waters rush beneath my feet
pink quartz, mica-shine

adam, made from earth
lover still hidden inside—
now awakening

I think of you wherever I am

tree on the hillside
bearing white seeds in winter—
take one, wanderer

I open the seed
the seed falls to the good earth
becoming new life

***

geese still wandering
beaks to the western mountains
one duck swims alone

***

old grass underfoot
pinecones scattered on the ground
bright birches, dark firs
