The Parent

I sit at retreat 9 days.
The woman says, See.
Hear. No, don't wave arms, don't use
labels like tree, See. See the green.
Hear the drum with your body as you walk.
We crawl on the grass to see. We move.

The woman says it is her birthday.
She comments on each part, appreciates everything.
She mentions even the anticipation. She sings,
happy birthday to me, happy birthday to you,
everyday are we born, every day are we free.
Everyone is noticed, everyone is included.

Resting in the River
