After Vision Quest

By Kate Lawrence

Everything speaks of the forest to me:
The trees my bones, stones stack the dense meat of my body,

Leaves twine my hair and moss whispers against my cheek.

My eyes are stone circles unblinking in the sun,
My breath the wind tumbling over the hilltops,
Brook-water my blood,
The earth breathes me in and out, cradled.

I am bones found in bracken,

The wonder-spark of the gold moon rising,
The soft call of the constant stars,
The peep of the fox, winking over reeds,
My heart in the curve of that hill

The next Movement Medicine Vision Quest will take place 8 - 15 June 2012 .
