entire worlds exist behind each set of eyes
as they stare intently
or close to contemplate
finding tales that will never see the light of day
as lives play out inside minds
daydream and play pretend
imaginary friends
that lead the way
in tickling spring rain
in warm summer grass
in crisp fall leaves
in harsh winter gusts
in life
in love


and if we’re lucky we keep those worlds
even as the one around us is disenchanted

    love is a place
    & through this place of
    love move
    (with brightness of peace)
    all places

    yes is a world
    & in this world of
    yes live
    (skilfully curled)
    all worlds
