this journey

this journey

this path through life
the folds
encrustations
left turns
dead ends
much heartbreak
lots of joy
life has been
her teacher—
there it is
right in front
the next evident
thing, glaring
sometimes—
a smack on the head
startling her
come back here!
now!

and she does, with
an attentive heart
now be here

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—not final versions.
