The Life Of Poetry


Deep strokes of the oars
Beneath the raft strong currents
Heading out into the tidal karma pull –
Following petals downstream.


A silent wall
with
Trembling leaves
Acting as shadow-
Darkness given a place, 
also.



White frost crust clinging to earth
Clarity too
Footfall breaking through ice.


Each day
Slipping further into the soil
The bench –
Suddenly knowing where you are.



Black buds on the elderberry
Ambitious schemes
To find winter lost in spring,
A child among the trees.


Just beyond eye reach
Just raw feeling for company,
How one becomes,


A poem in the life of poetry.
