What the Trees Said – Coyote

coyote

Last night coyote,
whose mother
raven said
was hit
on the highway,
turned himself
three times
scratched
sank
midst the gnarled
knees
of grandfather oak
tucked his face
beneath his tail
and slept til dawn

May we all find among the trees resting places for our sorrow.
Go out among trees today.

    this is so amazing…. I was hiking today and a coyote crossed my path … I have also discovered coyote scat in my driveway of late. Oh, by the way, I live in a suburb outside of Cleveland, Ohio….
    The wolf and the coyote are images that speak to my soul… thank you… blessings to you
