She is – poem by Mare

She is



She is the wild eagle bone empty

             but for spirit


She is the wind coursing through

            the mountains


She is the first crocus of spring singing life into

            winter’s sleep


She is the bluebird swooping through

            forest’s friends


She is the butterfly that lilts around

            the path


She is the one who drops nectar on our tongues

            each morning


To invite us to deliciousness each day

we choose to taste


Or not.
