THOSE WHO WANDER
by j.kiley

wander the woods
find the words
descriptions fill dreams

become friends
with the trees
imagine animals
horses to ride upon
branches for saddles

hold tight
daydreams begin to soar
places in the mind
escaping – leaving

what was before
behind
not lost
just
don’t want to be
found

  1. WANDA

    Wanda’s wandering
    In the woods of words
    So many trees
    Manitou
    Too many to count

    Wandering
    Wondering
    Lost count long ago
    Lost in the tick of tock
    The tock of tick

    The time in between
    Ticks and tocks – Spaced out
    Neither here nor there
    A leaf, a tear, a smile
    Who’s to say

    Who’s to say
    A leaf, a tear, a smile
    Neither here nor there
    Ticks and tocks – Spaced out
    The time in between

    The tock of tick
    Lost in the the tick of tock
    Lost count long ago
    Wondering
    Wandering

    Too many to count
    Manitou
    So many trees
    In the woods of words
    Wanda’s wandering

  2. WORDS WANDERING

    words in trees
    and woods wandering
    burrowing into honey suckle
    getting out of the rain
    and not to be found
    will return when ready
    need to finish wandering

    getting lost
    an adventure
    where are the wild ones
    protecting the trees
    from destroyers
    time passes
    trees last near forever

    clocks stop
    noise tocking
    ticking
    boom
    the bomb
    only a dud
    ticking in silence
    except heartbeats
    rhyming in rhythm
    lances drawn
    watches set
    on your mark

    time for tea
    tea time
    crumpets and liquid
    refreshments
    warm and sweet
    passing time
    wandering minds
    focus
    where are we going?

    counting the minutes
    adding them up
    casting them aside
    when things change
    and we begin again
    non-sense piled high
    with meaning buried beneath
    don’t forget to ask the rabbit
    he will surely know
    unless the queen shouted
    “off with his head”
    then changed her mind
    again and again

    end of edit
    time to get stoned
    and jump out
    the loop continues
    for a moment or two
