Stepping Lightly

We walk on air every day,
the weight of our bodies
pressing our luck, pressing
through time and space,
each step a choice
to stomp a heavy foot upon
tender green fragility, or
with our wings of diplomacy
spread wide, float along
the line of life we’re given,
crushing nothing in our path.

Plain

White coins
clustered in domes,
plants crowded
like commuters,
brightening
as the sun sets.

I wonder, and bend
to read the park’s label:
phlox—
ordinary wildflowers
a century old,
tamed for this border,

mounded, rounded,
snowflakes in evening air
not about to wither closed,
American country sisters
flaunting plain faces.

Lichen

Lichen slides
across this branch
like skin, thin blue waves
of dry watery ripples,

fragile dimples sleeping
over scaley bark
for years and years,
so subtle I pass it by,

so bold it creeps along
where nothing else will grow,
blanketing a hard cold stone,
or carressing deep crevices

of the cottonwood, glazing
the trunk in crinkeld silk,
ocean’s greens and blues
far from the sea.
