Nature, Our Teacher

DSCF3459.jpg

In time,
we will approach
more quietly,
see less of our own
busy movement
around the trees,
stop feeding our wayward thoughts,
stop circumventing the rivers
or wading upstream,
will instead patter softly
on the mossy forest floor,
still our restless hearts,
will bring the background forward,
see our origins
maybe for the first time,
find our teachers here.
