Different Dreams

Google me and you might find
that I once sat behind a mahogany desk
In a corner office with a view of the bay
I decided things of importance, and thought myself so 

Ah, but wisdom found my hiding places,
Haunting me with dreams of twisting buildings and tidal waves
And earth shifting, opening wide the ground beneath my feet. 

Now, I spread straw in the orchard.
I harvest snow peas and snap beans and sage,
I create fragrant, savory soup from fresh kale.    
Squash and tomatoes fill my baskets in summer...

I am as morning mist descends from our mountain and white pelicans ride gossamer threads above our waters
I make clay pots, and  pray amidst dancing trees, listening
Deeply called to heal the land 
from a wildness within me that doesn't decide anything,
Yet knows what it means to be in this place,
Enchanted and magical,
At night, I dream different dreams.
