at last, we are here
and still, the sun is real!  
how i've missed myself in this grassland palace,
brome or bluestem or whatever it is;
to live as a lapwing in your grandmother's dreams
eating at the inland wind,
brimming turtle quietude
just as i had left it:

pond oaks mired with a hundred broken backs,
burrow holes of rabbit tribes and trespassing fawns
whittling the woods while lake cranes are jumping ship
and who knows what else out there garroting the breeze,
riddling the miraculous
cow track heuristics
that seem to solve barbed wire,
boscage and gravity;
one-ton Houdinis
that disappear my blues with ease -
i wait for these simplicities
of listening.

uncharacteristically gentle, and really evocative, full of a sense of place and home.
