this mysterious place

15 May

i can wander and gather together

all the little scenarios which make up a life

i have all the time i need until i waken

exploring the vastness of this mysterious place

which begins high upon the mountain

on a crisp cold morning

and ends in the warm arms of a woman

whose face is so familiar but I can’t recall

and then i return to the creeky crampy body

and a life that seems like a pale imitation

of this mysterious place which stretches out

beyond my imagination each night

i return to do what i can to stay alive

until such time as i return to that mountaintop

where i can see so far

and so clear
