After Rain


In the morning: sunlight.
I go out to the slope of hill
where grass meets wood
and listen for a long time
to let rain drip from the tall trees
never hurried.
Beneath the cedar:
everything that comes up again with the snowmelt
unsettled root and stone,
the slowness in earth
the way one color pushes through another.
Where the light comes in the forest at this angle:
sparkle and dew
this white,
this empty.
