Ace in the Hole

It takes a bit of visual slaloming to look deep into the woods over the moose marsh between the trees to find a clear path through pine boughs past birch bark sloughing off onto masses of scrub brush to see the bright green of a sunlit clearing’s tall grass that blankets the inland meadow not impossible but difficult to reach a kind of heaven I can remember and then like a built-in element of suspense when I have aged beyond recognition I might catch a similar glimpse of green and behold. . . .

three crows
four pine treetops
my place in the world
