>There

13 Nov

>

I went there
I lived there
It was there I loved
despite all consequence
looking back at maps
I wonder where
the road diverged
where the trail
became unseen
and yet I trampled
tramped
stomped
carving my own path
crashed through underbrush
and
careened into culverts
whose walls
I am only now
beginning to climb

    >another beauty! your poems always leave me wondering what stories are behind the poems, yet they seem instantly relatable (is that a word?)at the same time. I would LOVE a book of your poetry.

    >Wow… I love this! I have written a few things that just flowed and I never knew where it was ending when I started the piece.I have not been blogging (actively) very long and was wondering if I were just rambling. It felt good, so I was not stopping. As I read your creations, I now know that I will follow my instincts to just keep spilling it.Thanks…Jules
