"OH WATERS, TEEM WITH MEDICINE TO KEEP MY BODY SAFE FROM HARM, SO THAT I MAY LONG SEE THE SUN."
- Rig Veda
The roof on our house slants outover the garden and if it rainsthe water falls on what blossoms
still arc in late August. My wifeis sleeping through her day. Thereis a breeze here on the porch. There
is a certain slant of light collapsingthrough the beech trees on the hill. Onetree fell this afternoon. I could hear it
cracking into the quiet, saw an angleof trunk begin to lean and then rustleits branches across the limbs along
the stagger of woods. At night, soundscome I can never identify. It’s oftenlike that, our long days lacking much
of anything that can be named. Mywife will sleep. I will walk back fromthe mailbox with our dog and wait.
