Notes from the Hill-Continued

SR tree 1.15

Another poem from my early coastal journal.  From the beginning, this hill, the rock and the tree became my place to sit and drink in peace.


The benediction of twilight,

golden grass whispers


dying red sun, a last light

across lavender sky


and two bright birds

wing to the chaparral


an amen of rustling grace

song with the green rhythm of flight
