Repose

motionless he remained
his soul already
flown to heaven

No One To Ask But The Fog And The Snow


will the curve
in the road
lead us back home?

Through


finally seen
the exit
from darkness

Alone With Everything


down the soft pine needle path
amidst the tall tall trees
the breeze accompanies me

Lantern In The Woods


a welcome
for wanderers
in the wild

Homeward Bound


water’s purpose
to be ever
rushing home

When Paths Diverge


some times
the deepest connection
is made alone

Passageway


through darkness
into light
the journey’s substance

Journey


remembering it all
spring summer fall
raven heads into winter

Under The Overpass

nature travels
humble hallowed byways
that always lead home

Red Eft’s Rite of Passage

orange his only protection
so many small steps in the long journey
from adolescence to adulthood

Passage

DSC02112
this is the way
through the dark and the grey
past winter’s long night and into the light

Heading into Spring

DSC02062
ride the rails
out of winter’s shadows
into light and the beginnings of green

Entry to the Realm of Spirits

hollowed through
passage to
the other side

Convening

DSC01215
clatter and clamor
news swap and weather reports
before the southern journey

Willing To Be Lead

the road
leading into the wilderness
leads out as well
