Be a Gatherer of Memories – Wordle/Common Meter – January 12, 2015

The Lawn

do not condemn the wanderer
who travels with ennui
think rather of the gatherer
of memories so free

smell the brine along the shore-line
singular living breath
render your life something divine
before you smell of death

channel wayward thoughts to the sea
even to inky waters
capitulate and you will see
ancient seamen’s altars

but generate unto this end
a sense of harmony
never be rigid my dear friend
and be good company

  1. I love this poem. Who would have thought you could wrangle something so profound and uplifting from such a disparate collection of words.
