CHURCH OF THE WILD

by Rebecca Leek*

 

Lime green lichen inch

across shallow remains

fungi turning a once-maple

into tawny humus,

releasing from death 

what yet spawns life.

 

Sounds of seekers – 

a cappella, drums – 

joined by birdsong

carry on woodland breeze,

decomposing notions 

of sanctuary.

 

*Rebecca Leet’s poem on “Church of the Wild” was written for Church of the Wild, MD/DC/VA, now Wild Earth Spiritual Community.
