Her Great Alibi

“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” ― Henry David Thoreau

Music is her alibi
she can’t sing but she can fly.
Forgive her for leaving
this ordinary life
she is a dreamer
the stars are gliding
through her
like warm blood
through her heart;
one beat
one dream
one cell
one breath
one life to live.

The road is wide
the trail is endless
leading to the rich
wilderness to discover
her true poem
before the leaves fall.
Where Nature’s ink
soaks into the parched soil
like hope into the human soul;
drops of existence
the liquid wisdom
of love and tenderness
where she feels the miracle
of harmony and being alive.
Her great alibi.
