suicide

paula’s weak moment
leaving me early
sad lonely feeling
nightly she returns
softly whispering
her lost love
still in my heart

bliss

alone in library
empty used bookstore
roaming shelves
sacred experience
like attending church
feeling hopeful promise
quietly turning pages
becoming dreamer again

freedom

waking to birdsong
before first light
building small fire
boiling water from stream
instant coffee
oats in tin cup
ready for journey
picking way over deadfall
brushing aside cobwebs
escaping invisible satellites
government surveillance
knowing where I am
finding empty cave
remote cliffs heights
sitting around campfires
discussing with owls
wisdom magic poetry
