    Late to the party, but yes, what a fine poem, fine reading of it and pleasure doubled by knowing it was one of those gifts, so rare to appear.

    Thanks, everyone, for your kind and generous comments. As for the audio, I’m always struck by how different my voice sounds in my head than “out in the world.” Glad it doesn’t seem a disservice to the poem, which was one of those “given” things. Always a pleasure when those kind arrive….

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard your voice over the long friendship we’ve shared all these years and now finally here it is, such a lovely voice and poem. Thanks so much for sharing it.

    unguarded mindfulness — wonderful to ascribe that state of being to the more-than-human as well as oneself.

    Beautiful–and with audio! This would be a great poem for Bristlecone. ; 0 )

    That’s a poem that takes the reader into its images and its place. “Mindfulness” is so needed…

    Beautiful poem, especially when recorded by the poet so we can listen to his voice.
