The Trail – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

VJs Weekly Challenge – Savour



“The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting.”  Andy Warhol


The Trail

The house is quite still though the door,
familiar evening smells permeate, and
soft jazz, a quiet horizon, fills my arrival
while the long hours have hungered me
and my stomach cries out,
but nothing could satisfy more than to
follow the breadcrumb trail you’ve left
for me to discover,
this unfamiliar familiarity,
and to savour its delicious steps
ever so slowly.
