Pin It

Wind, calm, rain of needles shaken

from the firs -- everything at last


touches dirt. Night falls

first from your eyes, straining


in diminishing light

to see bats spilling from eaves,


silhouettes of jays, the fleeting owl,

a cheekbone, a ridge of brow


the face of earth

that still loves you.



Pin It
