I want to write a poem about my life.
To sum it up with words, like love, change...
I want to tell you all the secrets,
Held in all the private places,
That you all already know.
Of how all the invisibles
Bring us all to the tangible -
I want words to put to every moment I sit inside the place,
Where truth resonates peacefully
Despite the facts.
Where an upright universe is represented
By small failures.
It's a field...
Sleeping bears and grazing elk,
Breathing evergreens with their pet sparrows.
Bumblebees teased by laughing tulips.
And my heart, with all it's cracks,
Lying in the tall grass.
