Child touching a worm — Earth Day Photos | Amy Deputy Photography & Co.

 

Lay down these words
Before your mind like rocks.
placed solid, by hands
In choice of place, set
Before the body of the mind
in space and time;
Solidity of bark, leaf or wall
riprap of things;
Cobble of milky way,
straying planets,
These poems, people,
lost ponies with
Dragging saddles – –
and rocky sure-foot trails.
The worlds like an endless
four-dimensional
Game of Go.
ants and pebbles
In the thin loam, each rock a word
a creek-washed stone
Granite: ingrained
with torment of fire and weight
Crystal and sediment linked hot
all change, in thoughts,
As well as things.
“Riprap” by Gary Snyder

“Live in each season as it passes;
breathe the air, drink the drink,
taste the fruit, and resign yourself
to the influence of each.”
Henry David Thoreau

“Keep close to Nature’s heart…
and break clear away, once in awhile,
and climb a mountain
or spend a week in the woods.
Wash your spirit clean.”
~ John Muir
