Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

There are so many people who’ve come before us,
arrows and wagon wheels, obsidian tools, buffalo.
Look out at the meadow, you can almost see them,
generations dissolved in the bluegrass and hay.
I want to try and be terrific.
Even for an hour.

~ Ada Limón, “During the Impossible Age of Everything,” from Bright Dead Things

  7. I could hear the wind and smell the sage from here … and my father’s land looks just like that. It is sacred to me.
