a storytelling of crows
convened in the birch
ushering spirits past

Mountains beyond Mountains

You may recognize the mountain by name or shape
but to truly know her is to walk the contours of her mass,
to watch her reveal the secrets of the seasons,
to remember and to feel the spirits of all the other feet
who have touched her and whose hearts have found home.

Tree Spirits

The tree spirits wear bark masks
and leave them behind
for us to remember them by.
