TO SHOW YOU I SEE YOU

.

I want to walk forever

in this forest

gazing at the tapestry

of each trunk of tree

.

I want to weave as you do

you

.

with light, lichen bark

pattern, story,

wound, growth, peeling

grey, silver, silver-green

flocks of flecks, spots, specks,

spores, maps, coils,

whole starry skies

.

I want to be weaving

as you do

.

with my human words,

my songs,

.

to show you

I see you

I will weave as you do

.

I will be as much

as I am

as much as I can

.

to show you

I see you

.

.

SHE IS (Argenta’s place spirit)

.

The day she pushes through my face,

cracking my skin,

the yellow sun

cannot burn the mist away.

.

It is She,

tugging down my mask

with her fallen, wrinkled face.

.

Her cheekbones drawing my cheekbones back,

stretching my mouth

into the grin that holds all sadness.

.

It is She

who is pushing through my bones,

She who is

trapped in the mountain’s stone.

.

She pushes through

what solid mass blocks memory:

this bone and flesh idea

of separation.

.

Remember, she tells me,

how much you know.

Remember, she tells me,

how large you are

.

Home.

I am home.

.

The tallest fir is silent

beside the yellow sun.
