Piute Creek

By Gary Snyder

One granite ridge

A tree, would be enough

Or even a rock, a small creek,

A bark shred in a pool.

Hill beyond hill, folded and twisted

Tough trees crammed

In thin stone fractures

A huge moon on it all, is too much.

The mind wanders. A million

Summers, night air still and the rocks

Warm. Sky over endless mountains.

All the junk that goes with being human

Drops away, hard rock wavers

Even the heavy present seems to fail

This bubble of a heart.

Words and books

Like a small creek off a high ledge

Gone in the dry air.

A clear, attentive mind

Has no meaning but that

Which sees is truly seen.

No one loves rock, yet we are here.

Night chills. A flick

In the moonlight

Slips into Juniper shadow:

Back there unseen

Cold proud eyes

Of Cougar or Coyote

Watch me rise and go.

None would say so,
Not natives, nor guests,
So hear ye and know,
I see Mount Olympus,
as Grand as its Grecian myths, 
in Kunoy.

Golden buttercups grow,
for Gods and Goddesses,
but the winds blow,
as sheep readily attest,
an immortal steed, whoa!
in Kunoy.

Tree nymphs of long ago,
Here they live and rest,
Carefree and aglow,
in their emerald chateau,
hidden on a meadow,
in Kunoy.

Sheep along the archipelago,
Confined sans protest,
Carefree and aglow,
in their grassy chateau,
by the lake, its soothing flows,
in the Elysium fields of Kunoy;
with Zeus in its heavens;
Poseidon in its seas;
and Hades, its meadows,
for here, now,
there is no underworld ear of rice
