Tender maple early riser


Tender maple
early riser with unruly hair

summer one or three thousand years ago
boy seeks water seeks stone

arrow leaf arrow root
up down

lost in song
of self

long gone

now

William, this is almost unbearably beautiful. It captures something so incredibly uniquely personal - and yet there will be so many who read it and feel that way. Thank you.

Let it be one, Gabriella — you — and that boy’s a happy man.

I'm always at a loss for words after reading yours,
but great work, as always...
you have been on quite a roll my friend... :)

Thanks, Brad. I’m just grateful we can stay in touch.
