What does it mean

that you wander through those hills,

hide between the rocks and burrow under roots?

What does it mean

that you listen to the birds,

head cocked in concentration for their words?

What does it mean

when your eyes turn to the peaks,

houses and humanity left behind your mind?

What does it mean

that spaces stretch to pain,

hubris becomes agony and no one is the same?

    Your poems are always outstanding! You always bring out strong emotion in me as I read each of your poems, deep sadness sometimes while at other times your poems bring out light hearted emotions and everything in between. Well done as always.

  2. Stretching, and hiding, serve the two ends of the same psyche. I find hubris always an agonizing event.

What do you think?
