I took my words for a stroll.

I had to take my words

for a stroll today.

Out of my mouth and along a river’s edge.

We gathered under the tallest of trees.

Robins and Meadowlarks sang Celtic songs

and dragonflies danced along.

We walked away from the normal

and bridged a crescendo of lyrical and lush.

Sunlight captured the time between the spaces of unseen.

I peeled a few dormant vowel sounds

and held the ripe of today in my hand.

And wrapped myself around the cherry blossom

of antiquity and tomorrows.

My writer’s thoughts

were lifted tenderly above the horizon

and I started to see.

I felt them in my eyes

behind my dreams.

It is a place wary of speech

and yet passionately felt at the depth of sea

and sky and eventually rinses

in virtual ink.
