Connection

20150802_140952
seek a direction
a sense of connection

(where) blood oughter
be thicker than water

water shallow
still and fallow

all bereft
what is there left

lost sight
need to take flight

seek a direction
sense of connection

In response to Mara Eastern’s poetry 101 rehab: Connection, currently being hosted by Andy Townend http://andytownend.com/2015/07/27/poetry-101-rehab-connection/. Inspiration, for this one, comes from the importance of connection to ego. That connection to others (family, friends), culture, history… all important in making sense of self and place. Without connection or when connections become tenuous it is so easy to lose anchor, come adrift, become lost, suffer melancholia…

SO grateful for the many and varied connections I have to the world.
