Naked: All of A Sudden

Oct. 10, 2018

Naked, all of a sudden
and all I did was remove my socks
and only to chase my prancing dog,
but bare to the earth I am not clothed. 
           Lord, give me peace!

Connection to my ancestors through ten roots
extending my feet;
I am in union with the blades,
the dandelions in their sleep,
and the warmth of the sun spread
through the dirt beneath.

My peace arrives,
within calls of my love 
to bring me back to summer time;
crazy am I to have walked barefoot in the snow.
