Peaceful Assurance








A lake of jade
reflects the flowers and trees
as if they are all we need to know
on this earth.

I think of Thoreau
and wonder
if there were wild azaleas
at Walden.

A bull frog
calls his courting cry,
and then a splash.
I can only guess at his success.

In a green so fierce it takes your breath,
I have put my voice aside,
Even my footsteps
are a desecration.

    Tree cathedrals celebrate the infinite and the finite in equal measure. In our luckier moments, we humans can see both.
