FLY

A man of the land returned to the sea, to blow

in the wind through the cedar trees. To fly

with the raven or swim up the stream, my

father’s not gone, just not to be seen, but to

live in the land and all of our dreams. He

comes to me in the darkest of night, reminds

me he’s there and just out of sight. I hear his

voice in the quiet soft breeze. In the sounds of

the summer he whispers to me.
