taking notes on a pad named EARTHWISE
I wonder, what does ‘earthwise’ mean?
perhaps the manufacturer’s caring
for our imperiled Universe
who is really EARTHWISE?
on rough hilltops
linking with Solstice bonfires
knowing to honor
the sacred oak
the rowan tree
every American Indian
of whom it has been prophesied
“a time will come when white man
seeks your wisdom”
