What the Oak Told the Cicada - 2015

Be at home in the heart, ballast for brittle hides,
make ledges of light your springboard to providence.

Be at home with the hunger, let it shake you,
be at home for the mercy, scuttle it's fine edge.

When you fly, follow warmth, avoid chickens,
sip a dappled breeze, and never lament.

Be at home in the peace, marry shadow 
with dream, join its long name:

Grasshopper 
Mother's Milk 
Rosemary 
Alabaster
Waterfall 
Lemon Balm 
Red Tide
Boney Night 
Chanterelle 
Mourning Dove 
Estuary 
Kudzu 
Moonrise 
Fish Bones 
Dandelion 
Rain
