You are a walk in old growth,
The softest moss enjoyed by many stepping creatures.
As I grow weary I ease myself into your tall grass,
In the place where the wind takes itโ€™s rest.

You speak to me in dream and river tongue
Chanting swallowโ€™s songs and perfect weathered stone
I close my eyes and we exchange silk and furs
I worship the earth spirits that live inside you

As days pass, laughter turns to sugarcane
Tacit moon makes adobe pueblos
Hereโ€”my chest never touches the ground

I take shelter in your familiar terracotta
Like water excited in the kettle
Hereโ€”the bird of my thoughts sings
