Ambushed by Desire
30: November 2019 Filed in: Out & About
Stopping along Mont Highway 200
at the pull out just upstream from the Perma bridge.
“Where You Go to Waters Edge and Holler Across” Salish-Pend d’Orielle place names.
“It has Something that Rolled Down.” and the “Place of Ambush” just upstream.
Stop’d here so many times the path familiar yet the place, the view, the moment
always new and always precious; I am ambushed by desire and longing.
Now, once again, quiet and still and suddenly everything falls off and away
leaving me bare and exposed and so very much awake.
