The Green Man Lives

The Green Man Lives

Hear the silent drumbeat
see the unknown sound
feel the pulse
of rivers underground;
of sap the runs through veins
of a billion leaves.

Unearthly music
in the turning of leaves
in the wind.
A scattering of milkweed
silk seed glide.

Breathe sweet warmth
honey sun on skin enters in.
Touch earth with soles of feet.
Lie down where marigolds grow.
Breath in leaf mold--
the green man lives.

excerpted from my book, Between Sweetwater and Sand

available from Amazon.com and bn.com and elsewhere.
