possum creek (4 Aug 2006)

7 Aug

Retreat
Possum Creek
run away

  hide
unusual weather
as thick fog and monsoon rains

veil the view with thick speech
cover the ancestral basins
Retreat

Possum Creek
  lift the dead
souls and open the valleys

misted early by sadness
but tendered at last
  by the light of lights

Possum Creek retreat
haven fed by rain
bless the harvest

drink wine from this grove
tendered by daybreak
  and by hand
