the breathing of trees I

I

I fell into the silence
walking through long shadows
between the trees
turned against the light
I didn’t ask the sun
in passing
if he knew me
did he recognize the curve
of my body
the scent of my hair
somehow
it no longer mattered
if it ever did
I fell into shadows
walking
long lines made
by trees standing on the hill
blinking at the blue sky
each step lost
in deep moss and muddy trail
I fell into the river’s song
the breathing of trees
and winding path
three deer met
unexpected hello
a hawk watched
I returned to the beginning
leaving the fall behind
