in forests of tall trees where your bears chase me

in silent sunsets that slowly explode of your essence

in quiet stars and solitary moon that sing of you

…where I feel you the most.

Through tall trees and green leaves

as steam rises from river
and sky turns pale

precious life all around
stirs anew for another day

emerging from darkness
but align with
this light of hope?
