The wind blows a reminder
of Eucalyptus trees growing tall
in Berkeley on drought
scorched hills

Thirsty for sageness I walked
the grounds of dorms
a chapel on the hill
silent guardian

Observation of seekers only
spending time within
solid stucco walls
soul scrutinized

Revealing only a conundrum
harnessed to me a mother
accused as a daughter
fettered sister

Yearning for only peace
children serendipitous
a mother without pain
brother a panacea
