Sunday Morning

If you move
soft enough through the wind or woods,
they say the sun will make a space for you.
Some of your regrets might soften. I move
terribly. I crush twigs and spiders but the horses
say nothing of it; they let me pet their long manes.
I hop on and we walk out to the end of wanting.
What is God? I ask them.
They tell me, Yes.

  10. The horses are abiding, and so is the woods. I have left my pain along with daydreams and plans for the future in the quiet arms of the woods. The woods are abiding, too.
