Unmoored - God Knows Where I Am

How chafed the foot bereft of sole, when unshod thoughts meet splintered floor. Known terra firma drifts from whole, as reason loses sight of shore. I’ll wander where the breeze seems kind; sweet apple blossom fairies lure. Away from those who cage the mind, indulging revelations – pure. I’ll play the bride in quaint repose, replete in sagely fettered yearn. A farm house dowry, heaven chose; soon I will quell all mused concern. Old voices join the pipers tune, a melody once clear – opaque. Reality lies roughly hewn, upon this page; my soul awake. **29 May 2017**
