Wandering Again



I’m wandering again wearing my old coat. Holes in my jeans.
The soft shoe shuffle.

Mist in my room. Rain on my pillow.

The green river carries ships and birds.
Leaves of red and yellow.

Hat on my head.

It takes a while to get there.

The have you done this, have you done thats until I finally let go:
travel backwards, forwards in time.

Fool that I am
for forgetting
such a simple,
complicated thing.

  1. God, Jonathan........just hear this ringing and resonating all through my 'wandering-again-soft-shoe-shuffle' self.........Fool that I am too..........don't know how comforting it is to know we're not alone in our foolishness....our 'forward and backwardness'........God, something in this just sings in me.............for better or worse.......

    a bitter-sweet thanks, as always my friend, for your Words........

  2. Love this, Jonathan! I hate lists of things to do! I'd rather travel back to happier times but one must remember to return to the present and look forward to the future.
