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
