My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“This work is my ministry,” she says, “and I've been placed on our Earth for this reason. Helping the poor is one of the areas that gives my life great meaning.”

Walking at Dusk in Early Winter

I have slept through the first snow, the grass and the dust gone. A day lost, an eon?

Tides of the old inland silence return, pines under sail,

messages blinking on the phone,

the black box of my name sinking beneath the floes.

I do not know my food.

My skin has become a beautiful ear watching

birches scrubbed by light whales loved.
