1. There is a place...

 

 

...I can go without actually going.

I've been there for real, many times.

And when pillows resist my spinning head,

I go back and the dreams come.

 

It's real alright, it's no fairy tale castle

There's a tree with my name carved on it

Simply thinking of the day that I put it there

I can smell the sap all over again

 

There's a nest in the branches

and in summer you can hear the fledglings

fight over grubs and chewed up spiders

then silence as their mother flies for more.

 

This is just a fragment

A millionth of a single jigsaw piece

It's a grain on the riverbed

A solitary stem of grass in a fifty acre field.

 

There is so much to hold on to

So many precious things that are lost in the blink of an eye

But if I want to, I can recall them

In atom splitting detail

 

And if there's something I can't quite put my finger on

My mind fills in the gaps

For there never need be gaps in such a place

This special place, that is ....MY place
