Two poems

Owl Song

out from the gray-green backs of trees,
spreading out as darkness into hillsides—

in silence, the fog—
its longing somewhere to be anchored—

what has traveled nearly
an entire lifetime to reach us.


Last Leaves

At the quiet edges of the forest,
where words keep,
wind stirs
what is left of gold and light.

It is here I begin
to listen.
