Shape Shifters

Written last week on our travels in Scotland…

 

I won’t always be able to follow you

down every corridor,

into your next adventure,

all through your wild

precious life.

Just when everything comes

clear,

takes a shape you recognize,

is when it is bound

to change,

utterly.

Remember the cloud pattern you

marveled at,

its perfectly rendered skyscrapers

strung along a city shore,

how it seemed meant for us

alone,

and how in the

instant you turned to tell me

had unceremoniously become

once again

just clouds.

Always be a poet. Even in prose.

In essence I am a storyteller who writes poems. Put simply, I write the poems I want to read.[…]
