Journey to Somewhere
The dream disturbs my waking –
mares trampling through neat rows
of herbs and edible plants.
What does it mean –this chronic
testing of locked doors
along a long corridor?
A one-lane country drive
becomes a city trampled by tourists –
with nothing I need on sale.
We plan to meet beside a coffee shop,
but when I arrive,
you’re on another level of the mall
outside the city, where suddenly
I’m walking alongside a flow
unable to find my car keys,
unable to find my car.
Mary Harwell Sayler‘s bio:
Mary Harwell Sayler began writing poems in childhood but, as an adult, wrote almost everything except poetry! Eventually she placed three dozen books in all genres including poetry and how-to books on poetry and writing. She also maintains the Poetry Editor blog and provides resources for poets and writers on her website. Recently she collected almost all of the prayers in the Bible from many English translations, paraphrased them into contemporary language, and published the Book of Bible Prayers. She then published the prayer book in the King James Version only, the Book of KJV Prayers.
