Endless, shapeless

As the mountains walked oceanward

I wondered,

how growing from seed to stem

was made possible.

Too, I wondered how with every

fallen leaf of each fall

a child grows into dehydrated laughter.

How separation becomes habitual –

as if you and I we’re not of the selfsame soil.

If we were wondrous enough

allowing magnetically to be drawn into life,

like fish and ships

propelled by a force,

we could disentangle the knots,

or if unfeasible it seemed,

at least reacquaint ourselves

to seeing from the eyes of children.

  1. Enjoyed reading your poem…was very much taken by the line “How separation become habitual..” a very poignant observation.
