Poetry | What do I do when I'm lost in the forest?

What do I do when I'm lost in the forest?
Stand still. The trees ahead
and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here.
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger.
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers.
I have made this place around you.
If you leave it you may come back again.
saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you.
You art surely lost. Stand still.
The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you.
Northwest Native American Tradition

camminando + vernissage | NYC, February 14

I started my walk with Central Park night perceptions: skyline perceived through the trees silhouettes. The park driveways are crowded with runners.

Bill Jacklin @ Marlborough Gallery 

Bill Jacklin's paintings with the artist perceptions of of New York urban scenes reminded me of my own meanderings.

“Alive”   Pearl Jam
"Along the Watchtower"Jimi Hendrix
"American Pie" Don McLean
