I rest in this place

So far from where I wish to be

And a long time

From the memory

Of quiet and solitude

I remain here in this place

Always a bit unsettled

A drive pushing me

To another space and place

A water creature

Living in the landlocked desert

Finding beauty around me

Far from the sites

My eyes long to see once more

Removed from the spaces

I once lived and played and sang

The normal every day

A long time away

From the normal I once lived – Caroline A. Slee
