Irrepressible

Irrepressible

 

On a lulled and certain morning,

it arrives.

 

A moment steps into the road

and takes everything that once was.

Empty plans drift 

while you meet that singular,

tufted gaze

 

and every thought is upended —

even your own name becomes a question

with a whiskery twitch, 

by an uphill flow on furred feet.

 

As this fierce current glides around

you, a cracked stone in the river, 

a rush of recognition rises 

in its wake —

 

nothing can undo

the living earth that binds us, 

the timeless spaces 

lit

from within.

It is a wild and irrepressible 

love

that holds us all.

      1. Wow! What a blessing to see a lynx so close. Your neighborly life with wild beasts fascinates me. Thank you for telling us about it in your exquisite way!
