I Might Just Stay Out There

I got to thinking but, I let it go and instead, I let my mind wander
to Shangri-La, Asgard, Xanadu, and Kunlun,
such places of beauty that penetrated my heart with a wound of joy,
I’m back now, but I fly out again tonight,
and somedays I imagine I might just stay out there.

  4. I wish I knew your secret for wandering to all those places, but my mind, it seems, is rather like a dog with a bone … incapable of letting go. Sigh.

    Love the poem, love the image it evokes.
