A Mt.Hood Lovers' Poem

did you get my love notes?
 on the wings of chickadees
dripping down the lichen curtains
artsy romantic photo of bark volunteer!
wriggling through the soils
 clumped in sweet needled duff
 
bathe in my mossy bosom
i’ll kiss you all over with dew drops
and serenade you through the whistling trees
 
our loves are actionable
and peppered in flowers
 reaching volcanic depths
soaring through the canopy
to heavens beyond
 
  beloved dove
won’t you perch upon my limb
won’t you drink from my forest pools
won’t you nest in my hollows
 
i know you now as you know me
through our changing seasons
in these shadow times
i’ll hold you tighter
