Slugs

Dreamed 2010/11/24 by Ellen Frank
Over bits of stinging nettle
rain-hurled heaps of pebble,

fern leaf mold
split acorns, pine duff,

our mustard bodies
inch forward

Olive horse-droppings
puddle dark soil,

paths slippery
etched with cleft sycamore

Lichen curls drift in the wind
Water tumbles down gray, scarred boulders

Eucalyptus limbs quiver and squeak
redwood breath enfolds us

In increments we stretch, shift
probe in mottled light,

and emerge in unfolding time
below thick brush and toyon

Earth holds
our innocuous rhythm,

we press on
in dumb obedience to life,

blind to mountain bikes
that could instantly crush us.
