A Writer's Passage ... A Poem
I had stopped writing, creatively, for a long time
until one day, a few years ago...
I left you behind,
My unseasonable prose,
To rest unborn
With the shadowing...
The bereft companions
Of a stilled writer’s heart.
Distant and uncertain
My care had become your burden.
I marked the place to find you again...
Or so I thought.
I held my breath, waiting
For the season to pass,
Forgetting the mark.
The moment I lay the burden to rest
Was the day you came back for me,
Silencing the shadowing.
Was it just a moment ago that we knew?
The joy and quiet of knowing, silent,
That curls itself around the word,
"Seeing The Field"
Note: “Seeing the Field” is a scene with Matt Damon and Will Smith, taken directly from the film, "The Legend of Bagger Vance," that was directed by Robert Redford. This wonderful video was downloaded on YouTube several years ago by The Leadership Yoga, with which I am not affiliated.
