I'm off to Yosemite and then Southern Utah. While I'm away I'll share images and poetry from my book, The Undiscovered Country. Enjoy!
From Songs of a Girl, Mary Carolyn Davies
I am not afraid of my own heart.
I am not afraid of what may be in the places where
the shadows are piled.
I am not afraid—see, i walk straight in
And look everywhere. i am not afraid—ah, what was that?
It is a dangerous place in which to walk—a heart.
Especially one’s own.
There are three of us; the little girl i used to be, the
girl i am, and the woman i am going to be. We
take counsel together concerning what colors we
shall weave into the dram that we are making.
Sometimes they say, she is day-dreaming,
they do not know that we are taking counsel together,
the little girl, and the girl i am, and the woman
that i am going to be.
There are many things that they do not know.
