Read from the Book

Return to a place where nothing in particular can be seen
to explain why you return, nothing you can name,
though you can touch the memory of the landscape—

linden trees in a hedgerow, cut wheatfield, ruins of the
rolling meadow of sunflowers blooming, the musk of
their oil, 
contained heat.
