April 22; a snowy day in Steamboat Springs. Found moose scat by the house… A single magpie in the tree.



Signs of our Being

Alive and astonished

Left on the trail for others to find

Scat-like scribblings mark our way

With undigested seeds and dreams of our old illiterate souls


Wisps of our vapor

Cats’ paws against blue sky

Footprints across the white page

We were here
