Lorraine Gane | Salt Spring Island, BC | LCP member since 2004


My feet are wings,

eyes luminous pearls strung

on the bare-armed maple,

ears the owl’s lament in the forest

where I’ll walk this morning

dark loam cushioning my steps

the green bowing down

the big cedar inviting me

to touch her mossy skirt,

press my body against her great weight,

breathe in the aroma

of leaf, root and bough–

the bud at the heart of all things.
