a curious ermine

a curious ermine


I am still wandering.

It was, after all,  never meant to be a straight, safe path.
And I was never given a map.

I found signs
carved in trees
by birds
emblazoned in the heavens
by falling stars.

I heard the stories
whispered in duets of wind and dancing snow
left unfinished in the fresh mud by a
melting glacier.

I followed the lure of light born
in an ancient wood
that fondled the silence
at the feet of giant boles.

I am still wandering.
I am not yet home.
But I was never lost.
