Huffing and Puffing

an on-the-spot, unrevised oral poem
spoken on a trail in the Peace Sanctuary, Mystic, CT 
8:50 a.m., March 26, 2021

Huffing and puffing on a hill
can help you be prepared
for the powers of this world - 
a wide wall of stone, 
a limb looking down at us,
a lonesome song of a bird,
the belief 
in the looseness and loveliness 
of life.
