My Morning Poem!



I sit inside a redwood tree

on a root seat made for me.

The bark is feathered

with openings on three sides.

A twig dangles outside one window

with no perceivable connection

to anything but wind.

"You are held,  buoyed.

You need never do

another thing,

just swing along the path

which draws you."


I leave the tree

and stand,

walk to the sound

of water falling

down a rock plate

before it connects

to the sea.


I return across a wooden bridge.

Three children play, Billy Goats Gruff.

Their mother is an easy troll. 


I pass.
