The Tao of Tree Shadows

She runs, and whisper-soft,
they tell her things. Secrets.
The pounding of her own hooves.
The bleeding of this indigo sky.
The why of silence.

She’s got lungs, and legs.
She’s got this air and these miles.
She’s got nothing
to lose. And everything
to hold, for this little while.
