Wild

This piece is a companion to On the Journey: An Incongruent Life, as it was inspired by the same events and written on the same day. I do hope you enjoy it.

Wild

Today
I am wild and alone
With You.
You are endless.
In this field that rolls
To meet a cloudless sky.
That is a likeness
That I and all men
Should heed.
From the top
Of the hill
I can see-
Not everything,
But a great deal.
When all
I can see
Is the back
Of Your heels
That too, is
A great deal.
And that is enough.
But I think
It is You
Who wants to
Give me a vision
That is the shape
Of the note
That sounds and
Resonates with
My own build and body.
But today
It is enough
To be wild and alone with You.
