This Week's Poem

Et Cetera

Within this Alpine valley
endless fields of wild flowers,
wild flowers without names,
and within the field I,
within me a heart
level with the bedrock
encountering the roots of color-
ful flowers,
within my heart hands
hollowing out valleys
and constructing mountains
and plucking from them both
flowers without names.
