You have been
where you have been
someone else,

a place of peat, pool and sky,
stripped by wind
and swept by light.

You walked yourself
transparent, rock
your bone and motion.

But you have to return,
to walk back down
into your life again.

You try to bring
something with you,
a sliver of quartz

or a ramís horn,
a special feather
or a piece of eyebright.

They fade, as a pebble
picked from a river
will fade.

What lives up there
lives only up there.
And yet, long after

youíre down,
youíll find
something inside,

something beyond
thought and word,

by those hours
you spent alone
with stream and stone:

where a ravenís call
took all your attention;

where the news of the world
didnít rate a mention.
