A Wild Mother…

*

Mother-Wild has not only the experience

of her forebears and the accepted rules

of the clan to guide her,

she seeks to learn also from

ants, bees, spiders and badgers.

*

She studies the family life of the birds.

To her and her child the birds are real people,

who live close to the mysterium.

*

The murmuring trees breathe its presence.

The falling waters chant its praise.
