O U T: T H E Y ' R E

Right now,

there is merely

a sprinkling
of rain,

that I can hear
H E R E.

And sense, as it
falls on my shoulders.

T H E R E:
a wild turkey
calls others --
and chattering:
as birds begin
morning song
in acknowledging
the openings
to light, in the
e m e r g e n c e
of this day,
amidst the
s i l e n c e
of the madronas,

Darkness sways
in its hold
on the
n i g h t.

A promise of
that which lies
on the other
side of our
in contrast --

dark: light;

yet: unforgettable.

Grateful for
I am.

In whispering,
the sentinels
of this coastal ridge:
r e a c h --

As am I.
