I'm a poet? I didn't know it.

October 4, 2017



A rutty road flanked by scrub oaks 
silent hammocks...palmetto and sawgrass 
The road keeps going... 
reaching farther than I had imagined 
An old path preserved by a canopy of trees 
and the Mother's cushioning embrace 

Together we bump along 
everything behind us wild and beautiful 
everything ahead the same, familiar but new 
Two lives merging once more 
Our separate paths for now one 
Like the canopy of branches above 
our fingers intertwine 
our limbs stretch out around and between 

Like the land that's left unaltered 
So are we 
In touch with our true nature 
Still strong, even stronger 
after the stiff winds 
Old stands have given protection 
Love of life, of truth and honor 

We meet again on life's rutty road 
This time wiser, comfortable in just coexisting 
A natural embrace, like the canopy above 
but with beating hearts and creative minds 
Friends, lovers,  lives entwined.
