on the hiking trail
a book lies abandoned
at a rest stop
between pressed palms
I think about pilgrims

takes a lighter turn
skimming the surface
skirting the water's edge

spacer brush

the lacework of shadows
flutter on the lawn –
how long before all the words
we have become meaningless

All the myths
about grandmas and aunties –
softer than butter
have a share of their own

  making mistakes
in grammar and spelling
I smile –
the shaman says
only the gods are perfect
