Let Us Remember When We Are Abandoned

Let us remember when we are abandoned, the ground has not left us.

The soft winds of salt marshes, pine scrub, and low waterways have not left us. The egret landing gracefully to search for food in the rich mud has not left us. The fiddler crab scrambling to find his hole has not left us.

Let us remember when we are abandoned, to search in our sadness for the things that remain.
