i left the angles and corners
of urban life behind and headed
for the non-conforming
hills and fields beyond
lined with tree roots, streams,
boulders and valleys, places the
ancients lived and worshipped in
so many shapes in one place
my senses at once rewilded
coming alive in ways
i had long forgotten
the urban sprawl was a
very different place
when i returned home


I rewilded my voice

Took it back to my life as a baby

Saying gaga and dada

Leading me to point and gaze

In awe and wonder

At so much in the world

I was taking for granted

As an adult
