riven

“riven” < 13th c. Norse, to split (wood) radially from a log.

are others riven
as much as this?
turning how
and who and which

come river thread,
some one who ought;
the way ahead,
a bend we missed?

or you, in simple,
smiling step,
a way to keep,
the log to split,

these rings of growth
in you to see,
love this way next,
and this way free.
