Becoming Nature

From BECOMING NATURE: On Keeping a Nature Journal and Some Thoughts on How to Put Ourselves Back into the World. This artist's book of essays, poems and photographs was exhibited at the Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Festival Invitational at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.

All the forms carbon achieves with itself and the elements
are all great improvisations
like running full speed down a rocky Alp
feet finding footfalls,
maybe not with complete consciousness,
but with graceful survival--
turning here,
stepping there
running full speed
grabbing nitrogen, hydrogen
always remembering the way, the path
building memories,

becoming memories.
