Walking the Field

(path to the Walker Sister's home, Smoky Mountains)

Walking the Field

Out of green loam, dead leaves float
away from my feet as if making a clean
path for me to walk. But the wind
grows and confuses the fecund dance
into chaotic arguments and now
I am standing among the freshly rearranged
like piles of cast-off drafts of failed poems
or letters I'm afraid to address. But here
comes the wind again resorting
what I have finally come to know.
