12 July 2015

beech leaves
cottonwood leaves
flashing in the sun and wind
suddenly shatter my heart
I'll miss you so terribly
your brilliant blue eyes 
through the grass are
now indelibly part of this place
that already held my heart with ferocity
Pyramid Peak
Sourdough Mountain
Diablo Dam
are my anchors
the cords that reach
through my heart to
my hips
and braid the roots
from my feet through
this soil and rock

leaving again
I haven't figured out
how to stay
