ANCHORED


thank you to the poems

that have showed up


offered me their companionship


over these 30 days

and 30 nights


of wandering

in the corona desert, the covidian forest,

19 leagues undersea, over novel glaciers

through terrain

unknown and shifting



thank you to the poems

for lifting me with an anchor

a next step, a task


thank you


for the poems

that have asked

to be shared

come prepared to chat

with others, in ways

far beyond my control

thank


you to every kind soul

who has taken a moment

to read the seeds iā€™m scattering

let this smattering of symbols

become a shared plot between us

you have watered the words

(there is no greater gift)


and to you who have also

swifted your pen, pounded your keyboard,

offered us the solace of your voice

to you who made the choice

to play, i say THANK YOU

thank you poets,

thank you poems,


thank you readers.
