the measure of open space

Here and there
you build a
fitting structure

to rhyme
with what's around it

                    the meadow grass
                                     the trees
                                          the water

and learn to
leave intact
the wet roots
of the swamp oak
                    and the alder

& the trails
of the deer
                    up the ridgeway
used these
30,000 years
