Cherry Trees 

Forests surround me I am home
More free than a skipped rock over
The Clark-Fork river
My edges rolled smooth by the journey
Forests like my blood fill me with air
Like a bright red cherry juice
Its lifeforce pulses through my veins
Cherry Trees and long journeys home
Single track and Grizzley bears
I am running in my dreams
From the monsters of love
A tall tree stands over me
Shadows welcoming rest
A fallen giant
Red skin and Fungus
Skipping stones on the Pacific
A small bird sings me love songs
As my feet dance in circles
Cherry Trees on puddles of ancient oceans
Flooded valleys ripple forth
Tornadoes in my dreams
Nothing left of my heart but this
Small Jade pebble
