The desert, the empty space, the drama.”

“The land is like poetry:
it is inexplicably coherent,
it is transcendent in its meaning,
and it has the power to elevate
a consideration of human life.”

The Wave, March 2012   4 comments

The WaveImage by kenne

Climbing the dunes surrounding the wave
we entered silence and was glad to be in it,
knowing we could only stay for awhile. 

By the time we readied to leave
others were beginning to arrive
breaking the wave of silence.

When I think of our visit to the wave
I recall how our combined senses’ of direction
was put to the challenge on our way out

since the path was not a trail but knowing 
that if we stayed true to our direction,
we would end up where we began.

“One by one her limbs succumb
to weight of vine and snow. 
Winds blow hard, she cannot bend
her roots let go, she tips, and then . . . 
her lumbering carcass comes to rest 
amongst the rocks and flowers
in the understory of her youth.
Prayerful chipmunks eulogize. 
Mulching worms and micro-organisms 
tenderize what’s left of her. 
Old molecules and rare earth ions 
seek asylum in the rain, penetrate the hairy roots, 
and rise up through the xylem of her progeny.”
