When the Door Closes

My secret life as a poet, writer, photographer…



Forth I Go Whither I Walk

Today, in sunlight,
I stand just beyond the path;
but for a locked gate,
onwards I’d have run!…and yet…
forth I go whither I walk.

Sometimes dreams burn to embers,
and, mourning, convictions scatter
like ashes blasted by the wind.
When the fire’s fizzled, though,
and the burn salved,
a tiny bud emerges from the gray,
not quite new
not as fresh
but there –
there! –
