Hour 14: Lost in This Land

“The land knows you, even when you are lost” (from Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall-Kimmerer)

 

Then why am I lost?

This offers no comfort.

And what does the land know about me?

And how?

Indeed, it freaks me out.

 

It doesn’t help me to know that the land knows me

when I don’t know myself.

Maybe the land knows me,

but does it care that I wander lost?

How can I thrive in a land that lets me lose myself?
