For all the loved one's gone

Forever's not so long

This shaking keeps me steady. I should know.
What falls away is always. And is near.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I learn by going where I have to go.

Theodore Roethke

Denied our names, our faces,
we lie in the graves of our identity
with a stranger's pennies on our eyes,
seeking to reclaim ourselves
from the spaces between
what we remember doing
and what we yet might do.
Wendelessen, from "The Graves of Strangers"

Here the earth tells her story
to an attentive sky;
among these noble mountains
she is mastered by her memory.

Sometimes she seems touched
that we listen so well-
so she reveals her life
and then says nothing more.


"A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages." -Tennesee Williams
