Row after row of sunlit pines line this northern Wisconsin tree farm.

 

Instructions

Leave your cell phone, your watch
and your thoughts
on the kitchen table.

Walk slowly.
Leave the trail

to follow a scent
or to follow a bird’s refrain.

Stop often, and listen
for the under-sounds.

Notice what grows at your feet,
the puzzle-pieces of the sky
and what the light reveals.

Cast out your gaze like a net
and take everything in

every intricate detail,
each small astonishment.
