In Search of it, Still

Out there in the far-
Away fields there is:
A pond by a lake that
Has a trail that climbs
Up to the highest peak.

I have seen it. I
Have been there, once.

Near to a half-
Tall tree that rests by:
A boulder with mossy
Growth that covers
Nearly all of it it
Sits and waits. This
Small, sleek, and frail,
Little thing.

You have seen it. You
Who were once so close
To finding it, once.

By a place by a field that
Has so much strength and
Great little things that sit
And call out to the night-
Time skies so full of cold,
And stars. We

Search out for it and know that
It once was here and yet we
Call out to it, again.

    And here there is magic too – I love the repetitions – like falling through memory mirrors or catching reflections. Sounds and echoes. Once and again I hope we will always keep on searching – otherwise life would be very still

    I enjoyed the vivid descriptions and the thought of the “little things that…call out to the night.”

    This sounds like a place in a dream, perhaps real or imaginary. A place of power and peace I think, I want to know what the view looks like from the highest peak.

    Love how you make that climb to something that’s almost like a dream, or a purpose… the path is a wonderful metaphor especially a climbing one.

    Ah, I like the idea that if one finds something once one can find it once again….if only we search and call out, we CAN find! I like the metaphoric lesson you presented in this well penned poem.

    The last lines echo a sense of regret and loss…something almost won but lost…
