Spirit Valley


The knot-work parts

down this long leaf-lit lane

for friends who share a season’s walk.

Earth, roots, crowns of trees

the cliff-shale borders

become one shining sheath

wrapped in the electricity of change.

River-song calls at path’s end

laps them in water wisdom

of the flow of life and time,

sentinel old cabin empty of form

yet filled with moving shadows

waits moss-mute.

Feet leave no foot-prints

in the ancient valley

where only the walkers disappear

like bright leaves

into the welcoming earth.

A glimpse of beyond

mists the parting.
