I am
chosen by a place on this ground
              alive in grass give

chosen by a day
in drumbeats from between tree dance
sky from skin
              there woman
              twirling a child
              over the shadowless ground
              under the sun

              their beauty separating
              effortlessly from them
              & spreading out into the meadow
              lifting people to join
              the miracled tree movings

              hands to branch
              to raw breath
