Let a Poem take You There - July 12, 2022

some folks walk through woods

or along a stream

or inside a hedgerow

(my favorite)


to find wonder in

the welcome arms

of nature

and silence on her bosom


something about

having a poem

take you there

is like having a guide

that points out

what you might miss


movements of secret creatures

their shifting needs

wants desires

unseen to the casual eye


like those feelings

hidden inside you

anxious to be noticed

desperate to step into the light
