Pine sap sticks to my hands.
So do seven blades of sweetgrass.
A cherished trail ends at the tree line.
Scree fails to retain footprints.
No need to fortify the eagle’s nest.
A nonchalant god cloaks itself in clouds.
No memory of Moses here.
No shepherds need guard the local goats.
Shout Hullo like a precocious boy.
Echo rebounds many times.
