Give it Back

By Liz Witham

Give it back to wilderness
let it wild
let the volunteer seed find its moment, and the bird who knows it
even the spider silently weaving in hidden corners
our knowing, the illusion that we know
leads us out of the garden, down a path.
On that path we learn more but know nothing.
Monoculture of the mind.
Give it back to wilderness. Let it wild.
