offering

20151119_172340 (2)
i have laid myself out
on an alter of leaves
beneath the vaulted arches
of long grown trees.

mother of forests
grandmother of flow
take all of me.
let my walking be
your whispered prayers
on waking skin
let me live whats needed
let me be enough.

hush child
she says
in a voice like falling leaves
for in every stone the mountain breathes.
there is no need for asking
and nothing more to be,
go gentle now on steady feet
you are already me.
