december afternoon

image

The afternoon sun needs a place
To fall.
Its hands greet the treed horizon
And the stream dotted with geese
Below.
December cools my skin
Yet the embrace of sun
And an unfrosted landscape
Make me want to stand
In its light a little longer
-surrounded by long grasses
And tangles of weeds and twigs
Around my feet.
I feel small again
Giddy
Having wandered off path
But having found my own sacred earth
-untamed
And wondrous. J. Hamilton
