I will read from Memories in Clay, Dreams of Wolves & Dark land, White Light.

Here is a poem from Memories:

Clouds dressed and undressed the sky all day,
shadows straying across fields and dirt roads.
I walked against the traffic of the clouds,
their streaming east down the dry highway,
echoed by shadows and by dust-arousing
cars. I walked their windblown dust.
Soon my feet itched where they met
the shoes because, sockless, I had come
to wear brown leggings of sweat-streaked dust.
As the clouds have abandoned all hope
of making their endless goal before
the night dissolves them into white stars,
so I have given up the desire of reaching
my home before dissolving into the road dust.
And so I walk easily against the traffic
of the clouds, dust, and cars, humming quietly.
