Alive in Wild

Cascade

Creeeeak
the boardwalk
woosh
the falls
nuthatch finch
govern all
a mossy mattress dinner
call
to cascade springs’
water walls

where are you now
brown trout? how now?
Are you in?
Or are you out?
stealthily bubbling
all about
water cress’s pettycoat

surely monkhood, wild rose,                                                                                                    would tell a tale
of summers known
sing medatative ecotones
while men mad dash
at setting zones
collecting fees like nesting string
in balls of tangled
knots
and things

Unhavable
but to the eye
are monkey flowers and dragons
Sly
the weeds                                                                                                                                       they never mind
and never heed, but belly laugh
and fast agree
that anytime is good and free
for Play

unless the air’s turned
sultery blue                                                                                                                                where hawk once circled before noon
the clouds have curdled
and steamed away
clothespinned the birds
in thirsty shade

I’ve gone
to where the wild things are
away from touch
away from tar
‘neath shady leaftops
rippled pools
up canyons cool
to Nature’s school
