Blind Discovery

Took a drive in the rain today, crossed an overflowing river,

Got stuck, carried me away, to somewhere bright and better.

 

 

Dumped me in a bog, All day long there I bobbed.

And listened to the croaking frogs.

A rolling fog came by and sat while I drank some luke-warm coffee,

We talked about our lives, where we’d be eventually.

When it was time to go, it went on, and I wanted to, too, but-

 

Sometimes when you’re stuck in a soft spot,

It’s easy to fall asleep at the wheel,

It’s hard to tell what’s real,

So I let the greatest mother take care of me.

 

I had a still-water dream, of a golden, skinned, slender woman,

With weeping willow leaves for hair, and eyes as dark and soft as soil,

She held my face, her lips said nothing, but she told me everything I should know,

A certainty anytime I needed guidance, when I felt alone,

She’ll be waiting for me, as long as I make it to her.

 

Took a drive in the rain today, crossed an overflowing river,

and I went on and on and on.
