Low-lying woodland near Cache la Poudre River, Fort Collins, Colorado
my little green lawn
dreams about the pampas grass
I dream of the stars*

are filled with sacred riddles

Nightshade blossom, Wilderness Gardens Preserve, Pala, California

Filling nightshade’s cup
from sky pools along her way,
pilgrim sips the stars.
