Jest if you like….

But I’m lying here at the bottom of this Soul.
I stare up into the wide open space
of the Grand Canyon in my mind.
There, in the blue of the sky,
the vultures circle high.

I can hear the music of the ancients
whisper valiantly in my heart.
The cries of loves long past
echo off in the distance,
“Don’t come back….

Come back….come back.”
What adventure awaits?
which journey shall I make?
I step into the silence.

Unweighted.

Untethered.

Unfettered.

Here I begin. On this day.
As no day before.
I return my thoughts
carefully to my backpack
And move forward one step at a time.

Jest if you like…..
But I am on my way to peace.
