Read an Excerpt

I live in a place
where I peek curiously, so curiously,
out at a darkness lit by fireflies.
I am at one with the snooping black bear
who sniffs and snorts the tent,
snuffling for treats,
before moseying along
with a goodbye garumph.

I live in a place
where I rest gratefully, so gratefully,
upon a rock blanket
after a hot, humid hike.
I am at one
with the rumbling, tumbling waterfall
that changes sweat to chills
with its shower of splatters and sprinkles.
