LOOSE AGAIN

LOOSE AGAIN

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

The magical, mesmerizing effects of the wild.

"

 
They're loose again. Those night rangers
that rescue ones vagrant attention by cracking
the encrustations of sleep from the corners of
vagabond dreams...leaving their footprints in
sharp corners of the star filled night.

By stepping into fields that have no edges
where wildness roams, yellow-brown eyes
pierce the midnight darkness and I feel the
coyotes' breath beneath each footprint, I'm taught
how to smile and given many reasons to do so.

Walking through the sky which blankets the ground,
I'm free to catch a glimpse of natures' private bath...
which always makes me smile and I understand why
I've always preferred the jagged skyline at altitude and
the deep-throated howls of those who play by starlight.

Creatures of the wild do not need to ask themselves
who they are...they've always known and are quite willing
to share their private knowledge with those who care to listen.

I've always listened. It is the listening that holds
my breath and gives it back when truth is known....
and is shown by smiles of gratitude and acceptance.
