Written for: Poets United Midweek Motif~Wilderness (posted by Sumana)
Is wilderness a place? Is it an instinct? Is it an idea?
How does wilderness make you feel?
If wilderness is being wild
as an adult and not a child
I’ll show you stories I’ve compiled.
Not for the mild, not for the mild.
If wilderness is woods so dense
then being there would make me tense.
I do require openness
without suspense, without suspense.
If wilderness is peace, you see,
there’s no where else I’d like to be
then staring out across the sea.
