Look Both Ways

April 17, 2017

This head amongst the grass is full of seed

pulsating with rich life when ending’s fear

blurs hopes and tries to lie when I still need

to see with open eyes. Now leaving here

I tread a path which winds between the trees,

not straight nor worn but forked and born

of chance encounters where others do not flee

but talk and lead me on, feeling less torn.

The gaze upon the dirt misses the sky,

where larks and swifts so light above the world

fill hearts with lift and liberate the sigh

of flesh which loves the earth on which it’s curled.

When running down, not up, on darker days

Find seeds, high ground, a lens to look both ways.<a href="https://www.marktweedie.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/oak-hand-mark-tweedie-pinhole-photography.jpg” data-rel="lightbox-gallery-mTCIXzS7” data-rl_title="oak-hand-mark-tweedie-pinhole-photography” data-rl_caption=”” title="oak-hand-mark-tweedie-pinhole-photography">
