With This Quill
With This Quill

I wonder.
I have a need to know
and this inquisitiveness,
well, it won't let me go.
I need to make sense
of all of the facts,
for that's the only way
I can conquer these
confidence attacks.
If I could learn what is true,
what is false,
how easier I'd find it
to steer the right course
through hazards that rise up
and bring me right down...

A feather pen,
I will write in the earth,
scraping and signing
for all I am worth,
as the calls through the trees
make their way to my ears,
and the breeze dries up all of
my too salty tears.
I will figure it out,
the answer is here
if I could just get my mind
to unclutter, to clear.
They call out the answer,
the crows in the sky,
if only I'd listen
I might find out why
the answers are always
evading me.
