dappled light

through dappled light spring sprung bright
old growth and salmon's creek
purple crowns, crested larks, and corydalis scouleri, rise above the lace greens
ferns unfurl

 thick needled blanket underfoot 

purple crown

spring's melt measured at 100% normal, my drought tuned ears welcomed the rush and roar,
the soundtrack of spring's melt. past, through and over my mind's chatter. now quieted.

now awake.

layers. of aspens kiss the banks. layers. of dog firs tower above

cool wind on the face

sun soaked resting spot, a river beach

a robin, boulder perched. meditating.
