Called to Wildness


Something in me thrills
to far away people and places
it ripples into me
on tides of poetry
a wildness sweet
and distant
a wistful call
silvery echoes
from
rich tapestries
and foreign faces
the titillating
sounds of
water splashing through
a hidden glen

How can I be
free
and yet be with
called as I am to wildness

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
