Wild Untamable Moments

In a world of sticks and stones, wet and cold, wild, untamable, unreachable yet available, always ready, teachable moments,

A strand of bull kelp lies helpless on the sand, a gull’s stern look, thirty-seven King Salmon circling in the fish wheel, we release twenty-five and give thanks

A mossy trail weaves, becomes lost, reappears again beyond the bracken, lichen-covered old-growth branches cast dappled shadows over broad leaves and miniature flower gardens, mushrooms sigh primal wisdom

Listening in, the melody, the vibrations of life itself, pluck our hearts’ strings and we sing, one, a piece, a part, the entirety of the realm created just for you, for me, our children bloom

The whisper within the wind, a chickadee’s cheerful greeting, then the sun, borrowing from the ancient one, kisses the horizon and melts into the purple of evening, the breeze shifts and memories of old tumble, reminding us, remember remember remember

And we do
