Many Trees Talking

country as flag
By the river
when it is cold
and the Sun dances
upon the water
so brightly sparkling
into my eyes & hellip,

... nothing
is warmer
than late into the night
when the bright Moon walks
the river of wintertime,
alone,
... when memory
sits beside me like a shadow,
and many trees are talking,
... as the horned owl calls
... the names.

Our youth was in a hurry
then.
So brave!
... so damn, laughing,
brave.

I build a fire to warm my hands,
my heart,
my old
cold
feet.

I am never alone anymore.
Voices
whisper in the glow
of embers,
as the fire fades to silence,
and the Moon remains a lantern
within the tall trees
talking
as I walk toward home.

The Owl remains,
so softly calling,
... the names
from long ago.
