Prophets

Prophets

 

The day 

the coyotes called

while crossing the storm-swept ridge 

on the quick pebbles of their feet

 

a clear sky followed. 

Woolly clouds fled the valley

  as if the coyote’s sibylline song 

had scattered them 

like thick cottony seeds

or a crowd 

of sodden sheep.

 

As the leaves dripped and 

glowed, you walked into the forest,

amazed.

 

So much light 

filters through the branches

when 

from within the storm

a clear voice

beckons.
