For one preparing to leave

By

Those of us remaining can not help with selling the house, or choose which integral part of a life to discard and which to carry. We can only stay, friends who share the weather, routes to work and the work, and always from windows the river beyond lawns and the desert profusion at its bank: changing in its subtle colors, its outward season; even at night when we need it, when we can not readily retrace its deep, ongoing shape, always there for us to turn to.
