Wild Places

Wild Places

A Poem by Arly Parent

The mind I love must have wild places.

                                                 --------- Katherine Mansfield (via feellng)


The mind I love must have wild places  
places I can run  
untamed but with its own natural order  
The mind I love must have wild places  
and rolling hills  
twisting streams of consciousness  
and forests for the trees  
The mind I love must be beautiful  
even its nights  
even when the cold of winter's shadows quietly blots out the light  
The mind I love must be fluid  
always willing to change  
and grow along the edges 
So one day  
I might find a hidden waterfall  
and a crystal cave beyond  
and just sit & watch the moonrise
and know you
again...for a night*

There's nothing about me. I play with pauses as well as silence. I write words, assign meanings and junk, and play with a language that might be as much my own as another. I don't know. more..
