The Quiet Constance Of A Cairn

the sun
is always shining
on my memories of you

In The Door Yard

with snow and flower buds
the cairn, moose antler and sun dial
mark and keep track of time

Madonna appeared
in a cairn of stones
offering prayer and blessing

Encounter


Coming upon the cairn in the woods
I knew we were still traveling together.
I added one stone for the two of us
and saw the face of a wise, knowing owl.
