AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Journey.


POEM FOLDED into a BOAT and OFFERED to the BOGUE FALAYA

Where will words take me today
And where, silent waters, will you ship the words
From what troubles shall I be lifted
What will you show me
What do birds speak of in the wet grass
On this journey how many footsteps
How many crickets shall I scatter
If I crouch like this how long
Before a fox brushes past
How long since fog lifted its net
And released my soul to leap

Alison Pelegrin
