Dream: April 3, 2018

I’m draped in cedar

Woven cedar

And a hat


She leads me

Because I cannot go without her


It is for me to honor others,

For me to walk with grace


And, yet, still, I search for

Skins I need to shed

The robes that I can do without

Left somewhere


Not needed anymore


You are moving

Sometimes slowly


But moving
