Summer Soltice

My body shall rest in safety.
Preserve me, Lord,
  I put my hope in you.
I have said to the Lord
  “You are my Lord,
  in you alone is all my good.”
                                                       Psalm 15


                                                In The Netting of Dream

                                   Sometime during our sleep
                                     The deer
                                   Like shadows
                                     Were passing by

                                   Dinting the dark
                                     Garden dirt

                                   Softly parting new leaves
                                     And snapping
                                   The dead
                                      Beneath their weight

                                      The starlight shifting
                                    A glistening

                                    Over the fallen fires
                                      Of the fields

                                    Like a blessing
                                      All night
                                    While we spun
                                       In the netting of dream.
