4/18/15 Poem: Another Self-portrait

 

Lichen covered oak tree

branches spread wide

octopus the sky

Deeper than the sea

roots beneath me

Take another look

blank page- the book

Sketch a reason why

 

Wander

Barefoot

Beneath

Her quilt

 

Leaving

Behind

Harvest

of guilt.

 

Looking backward sky full of rain

Missing sunshine up ahead again

Turning forward, walk on, plant the seed

Flowers spring up, blaze a trail of green
