Where Am I?

On a mountain in Meat Camp, North Carolina.

Sitting on the back deck enjoying all the green

and the quiet

and my pup

and my husband

And  I am grateful for my life

I am so distant from the hope of myself,
in which I have goodness, and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.
Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
“and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine.”
