How To Hug An Aspen Tree WHILE SURROUNDED BY WILDFIRES
Press your pounding drum heart right into her bark
let your breasts fall to either side
Baring the bone there to her skin
Breathe her in, down to your toes
Exhale across her body so she recognizes your essence
In Heartbeat. In Breath.
Hold on tight —
Offer up your gratitude
For shade shelter oxygen beauty
Say Help Me.
Say Thank You.
Still holding tight, Listen.
Widen your gaze to the forest surrounding you both
Let it all happen, receive
Feel all their essences flow into your heart
Your beautiful, aching heart.
Let the song of the morning pour into you, and
When you’re ready to move on
you will know
Your hands, chest, and cheeks will be covered with aspen dust
Don’t brush it off
Leave the aspen grove, covered as a kabuki dancer in white powder.
