right now
watching the old deer's
skull dissolve back
into the forest,
look how much longer
a thought may linger -
how much longer
than i thought.

and this flying insect, at rest
looks like a small bit
of leaf or bark -
long legs, runs
errands in a square
foot of forest floor –
stops at the alder leaf,
the salmon berry twig,
a small piece of moss,
this old thinking skull,
and her vertebrae
in orbit.

great images there (the skull becoming earth again, the bit of leaf or bark that is a living thing at rest, thinking skull in orbit) and stuff for pondering.
