“By experience we find out a short way by a long wandering.” Roger Ascham

This Trick

This trick, which is so startling,
a curiosity without answers,
my greatest reason for hope,
the ever developing question,
a gift of discovery to share,
to sit and be unfathomed in
unrestrained meanders free
of encumbered expectations,
a life unfastened, ready to be
explored as a new future.

  1. My brother, my brother, my brother. Five cities and a new device, email, phone and website & I think I have broken free. Here’s the new site: veritasinverse.poetry.blog

    I have felt your shoulder braced indeed beside my own. So much love to you.

  2. yes so very elusive this trick and also so resident. Outside and inside, both and or. A toss of the mane of a zany colt, whinneying.

  3. These lines in particular resonated with me:

    to sit and be unfathomed in
    unrestrained meanders free.
