A lifetime later


A lifetime later
the poet who conceived

the universe as pipe-smoke
or shepherd song

adds echo to the measure
of his line†

wonders who might
be calling

settles

on his mind


“Perspective,” October 28, 2009, Poems, Slightly Used.

At first I was confused who the poet is, you or someone else. But with so much time having passed, I'm guessing it's both.

Your guess is a good one.

It could be no other than you, William~

That stranger so familiar, you’re certain you’ve met him somewhere before.... Thanks, Jan.
