beside my home, on a plot of no man’s land,
there is a dead tree
that has been tall and empty,
save for the occasional woodpecker stopping by for supper.
in the rain
new tenants moved in!
they are proficient house keepers –
keeping things neat and tidy –
model neighbors reminding me of what is really important:
they only take what has been given, and whatever is given they freely receive.
Trusting the abundance of the world
and her generative powers –
Peace Eagles remind me of mine.
