The wild outside

Ah, the wild 

Outside me today

With the birds

On this misty morning.

In the trees

A strange call,

My first sight of 

The pileated woodpecker

A beauty which 

Struck me with wonder,

Such awe, I’m certain

I lost my breath

In the moment.

As a mirror, she saw me

And I her, 


In time each,

Maybe eternity

Maybe less,

Only time knows.

A sea lion barks,

Spell lifts.

But the string strung, 

for surely she is still here.
