scent of snow on stone

smell of mist on grass

taste of sleet on dust

drum of rain on rock

heat of light on face

breath of God on neck

ghost of her in heart..

Smell of rain

On stone…

Sound of wren

On leaf…

Feel of floor

On bone…

Sight of him

In grief…

Taste of yeast

In bread…

Touch of her

On face…

Warmth of hand

On head…

Here and now

In place…

Stable, grounded

To be fully

At home

In one’s animal

Body where comfort

And peace wash

All unease away

Rainfall’s caress

Descends smiling

From this all-knowing 


Nourished by bobcat

Boulder starlight 

And tree.

 And on the 8th day

god looked a tad bewildered,

even forlorn after that amazing week
of 24-7 creation,

feeling they might have forgotten
something crucial to the mix,

an item so small it’s almost

when you could see their palpable relief
as great shoulders relaxed and then

you overhear this low almost
imperceptible mumbling

to their behind-the-scenes long-term
partner, that sexy creative collaborator,

“Evidently, it’s the freckles.”

    Let’s keep plunging 

for pearls, 

feasting on oranges and pomegranates, 

    preparing for arrival 

into that river 

of silver and light.

death blossoming inside us

like an errant sun,

this unnamed



that strange package

propped quietly

on the doorstep

of your life..
