Ellen arrives like an apparition from the dark, whispers in my ear that someone or some thing whispered in her ear, awakening her with the sound of her own name.
Arising to follow the call, she found the door standing open…now she is standing next to me. We are silent.
Suddenly movement in the dark dawn, down below us, in the trees.
We follow the movement, separate, and disappear from one another.
I wander through waist high grass –
find nothing and no one, not even Ellen.
7 AM sit is silent, still, free.
