Leave me alone.

Let birds come.

Let stones be laid on stones.

Leave me alone.

I waken streets

when I walk through processions

of trees.

Kalamazoo Nature Center, Early Autumn 2012

              Under branches

I remember journeys

when I rose to foreign

suns and let the morning

seal my secrets.

Leave me alone.

A light has always

led me home.

A voice is always calling.
