Loosely Bound ~ (declaration a posteriori)

From this window
looking out at a string of hills
necklacing the horizon, distant
and untouchable, painted there
by centuries unapproachable.

Separate from them but loosely bound
I open up the door and venture out.
Although the wagon wobbles from its miles
I have become one with those hills,
an extension of the limbs of oak and ash;

more than a reflection on the pond,
I am the water rippled

  1. As always, Sarah, the lyrical descriptive quality of your poetry draws me in to be at one with your vision. So lovely. I especially love this line:
    ‘a string of hills
    necklacing the horizon’
    Blessings, Diane
