Faerie's Rest, Missoula, Montana

Sometimes
If you move carefully
through the forest


breathing
like the ones
in the old stories


who could cross
a shimmering bed of dry leaves
without a sound,


you come
to a place
whose only task


is to trouble you
with tiny
but frightening requests


conceived out of nowhere
but in this place
beginning to lead everywhere.
 
--
David Whyte, excerpt from Sometimes
from
Everything is Waiting for You
