Catching Poetry by Sunlight

No matter how many times
the story changes
we can never quite make it
out of the woods

Subtle messages
slip through the treeline
by way of sunlight

If we’re lucky we’ll catch
a few more lines
from Snyder or Whitman
or Mary Oliver

And so we listen
with our hearts
& our minds
attempting to capture
that which is given
