For The Poet

Her words
feel like a conspiracy.
Drag me, unwilling,
down dark path
wending into past,
tied up in knots
bound in shadowy corners
of only hoped for

Still, I seek
these carelessly dropped
firmly stomping on some,
pushing them deep
into soft receptive soil,
grasping others,
hording them in sack
slung across back,
knowing one day
they might bring
and an end
to hunger.

    Am so happy to see you here, after such a long absence. I particularly like this piece because it came together while I was browsing someone else’s poetry. I am all for inspiration. Good to have you back and will look forward to a nice long chat.
