22. Life Nectar


Life Nectar

There is a whisper
That I can hear
If I am still long enough.
Better to be heard
Accompanied
By punctuating
Birdsong,
Muddy shoes,
And hair tucked
Behind straining,
Open ears.
Better to be caught
When studying the
Massive, grand
And prairie-
Tale fairies' tale
Hidden in a blade
Of grass.
Better to be
Understood
By my body.

This voice
Whispers relentlessly
Of the awesomeness,
Of the grand reality
Of sitting
Still,
Under the trees.

This voice
Has Child Hannah
Humming
Of bees
And life nectar.

(This image was taken of me smoking a pipe in the sunset when I was about 15, under my favourite tree).
