Day 57: The air that forms around a poem

Is there benefit to writing

A poem a day?

When the wisdom I learn

Is left

Unwritten

And unshared?

Even when I write those words

A child

No,

Two

Shout loudly and call me back

From the place where words are formed

And once again

Lessons from the multiworlds

Leave me

They do not even leave a trace

And I am left

Bereft

With words on the page

That do not even remotely

Resemble

That which I hear from the hawthorns

Or the ruined mill

They instead

Take a form

Which I am meant to honour anyway

Yet the true message:

Gone

I have taken journeys

Deep into my psyche

And I bring back

Magic

Truth

Power

But I leave them

Somewhere close to dreams

In the air that forms around a poem
