thoughts from banff

in this space

time has texture

my thoughts do not rush

I notice my heart


in this space

I am able to reason

and to tease apart

the strands of epiphany


in this space

I feel the momentum of others

in balance with the trees, the grass, the rain


on the first day coyote came to check me out

he hung about for a long time

he wasn’t afraid

but curious


so I learned from coyote

and remembered how wonderful it feels

to allow curiosity


on the last day

I am sad to leave

but know that the wonder of this place

will always be in my heart
