Author's Note: I was fortunate to spend a week at Wishin' Jupiter Ranch in north-central Nebraska in October of this past year. My first retreat there resulted in The River Will Tell You: Poems Along the Keya Paha. I got enough poems for another book this time, too, including the three offered here. Great thanks to Suzanne and Karl Kelm for these opportunities!
Three Untitled Poems Along the Keya Paha October 2022
My morning coffee goes cold. The cottonwoods say: Now go find God. Go. ~ You find a place and wait. Any place will do. How do we not know this, what patience teaches? ~ Watch the trees at the edge of the river — that's where God is, sometimes acting like coyote.
