Deep Listening

everything in the world speaks
the air, the stone, the leaf
it is we who must become fluent

Pilgrimage To The Squirrel Bench

worship as
an acorn eaten
a devotion left

A Generosity Of Patience


ever
the gracious host
chickadee awaits a turn

The Tao of Trees


In his stillness
the squirrel seeks
to become one with the tree.
