Brief Coyote and the Thumbprint of Snow
Soft sounds, thumb printing snow,
singing as it comes down
oh, spacious innocence
and crystal faces,
are your eyes open or closed?
Your singing makes the woods
put on white coats,
tucks the grass
in for naps.
Slipping from invisible doors
brief coyotes hunt for an hour.
Yoga pose and meditate. My eyes
A shadow calls from thirty years ago.
I answer. I remember while talking,
the boat clutching the wind, the music
of your voice, the color of your skin.
We both apologize
for not being kinder.
Gray clouds rock the sun to some other country.
Still, the white goodness keeps falling.
Candles and flutes make the black dog
I turn from the window, my eyes full of white.
