Nature, She Thought I Was Sleeping

     
   
Birds do.      
Least they never took back seeds.    
     
She skirts branches,      
tenderly arranging    
(work the earth with full pockets)    
around me as I slept.    
     
Thoughts fell between stars    
before morning light rose.    
     
Tree kingdoms (who heard),    
thought at times, by    
grappling darkness into    
something breathing fire,    
Doom had vanished.    
     
But nothing among all their    
Small, dark insects    
remembered her    
dozen perfect white moths.    
     
If River floated in a luminous    
night, so better on my bed of      
lichens and water stone.
