Evening Comes by Sarah Rehfeldt

A mountain draws in deeper
root, tangle, trunk, cloud –
the whole of branches threaded through it.

This hour –
the last spokes of sunlight down through cedar,
sky unpainting everything in shadow,
forest filling up with darkness –

Come, distance,
so wordless.
Come, winter.
Come, burden.
