Floating Away – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVerse Merril is hosting the Quadrille with an invitation to write about track or any form of the word.

dVerse Poets – Quadrille – Track

“If you never get off-trail you never discover new landscapes.” Maxime lagace

Floating Away

I love where the track narrows,
restricting, though never constricting,
the pilgrims of hallow advance,
not seeking to overcome or consume
the weight of material living and,
once entered, discovering that
everything floats away like
harvest husks on a dry breeze,
seeking new pastures.

  1. I get such a sense of peace reading this Paul. Truly lovely.
    (Though I’d probably be in a panic losing the track.)

  3. Trails like these do not confine. Your poem and image remind me of many paths I’ve hiked with my husband in New Mexico. I especially love these lines….”everything floats away like
    harvest husks on a dry breeze”.
