Sometimes when I am walking in an aspen forest

my feet ground into the earth

so deeply,

I can feel the pounding

of tree roots conversing.

 

When grasses brush up against my legs

and leaves shake like dried beans above my head,

the whole, moving being

swallows me up –

The bark, so sensual

my fingers cannot contain themselves

 

and I run them heavenly

over it’s soft, white skin –

streaked with blackness.

Where shepherds and bears violated them

one hundred years ago,

or fifty.

 

Sometimes when I am walking in an aspen forest

there are moments

when I am released from gravity so completely –

that I just become

this dance.
