milky way

displaced logs
from a colonial cabin
the sound of a creek


sapphire ice
begins to thaw . . .
the elder's story


the Seminary Hill forest
a Pacific Wren’s song


in the darkness
of a hollow tree
the owl’s dream


the red sun sets
between pale white sails
a turbulent sea


her tears . . .
the river ice melts
into a song


oak trees rising
from old church ruins —
voices in the wind


dripping icicle . . .
I step into
someone else’s dream
