the return to forest park

IMG_0028.jpgI felt this place in my bones

weeks before returning

 

Restraining myself from rolling

on ground, I touched a palm

 

to old growth Pseudotsuga menziesii,

state tree. Songbirds sang

the canopy open.

 

The soil on my shoes was

a blessing, a meal,

relief.
