It’s just
the juncos
and me
out here

Every other animal
seems to be
sensibly sequestered
somewhere warmer,
drier, and safer.

But we
intrepid creatures
are out here
with the howling wind,
cold rain,
and even hail.

And we
don’t mind
a bit—

truth be told,
we love it!

It awakens
our senses,

the pulse,

makes us
feel more
fully alive.

It reminds us
that we are part
of something
vast, wild,
and beautiful.

It’s elemental.
