Purification

a skiff tied to a willow
waiting to rush downriver
to the sea

winter’s ice relents
vast arterial network
lifeblood of the land

watery spell
filling springs and rivers
cat watches raindrops

raindrops like jewels
glisten in pure white light
on dark naked twigs

winter fire
a branch of sage lit
smoke for purification

wide flowing river
rooted tree grows tall and wide
eco-system thrives

Methuselah Bristlecone Pine
thousands of years old
its California home a secret

secrets discovered
steam, ice, droplets; growing land,
tall trees, lush pastures …
