Change of Pace


I dipped my foot in waters blue

Created hints of things that flew

And wrote of one, blent fear and love

Who bound the worlds with feathers through

Dissolved myself in words like night

While in my head glowed candlelight

And so immersed had I become

That worlds and stories intertwined

I drifted far and far away

And lost a new friend day by day

I wondered why I’m all alone

While sailing off on my own waves

But this time I have found a friend

To write in verse and words that blend

Of writing, running, thoughts as poems

And search for truth through beauty’s lense

I wonder still at words like stars

And sink through tales of who we are

And grin like sunshine at the hope

Of those in which I have a part.
