forget-me-not

Atlantic Ocean May 2010

Remember?
The charming blue dots
sprinkling the craggy shores of Maine,
adventure atop the rolling ocean waves.
Peer down,
notice the five-star fingers
of peaceful dreams unknown.

Into the Woods

Escape
walking into the woods
I sense rejection
open spaces offer freedom.
Travel forward

into the unknown
possibilities offering
encounters never happening

is a teacher marking
“you had traveled here
