Tracks

The grey skies
speak to me today
as I touch the
silver bone I
wear around my neck
to remind me of what
I already know:

what I am –
what I can do.

The days when
I can’t see it
come so often,

but truth doesn’t fade
just because it isn’t seen,

and I know that
all I need is coded
in my very cells.

Yesterday on our walk
I took a photograph of
tire tracks left in the mud.
They were not extraordinary
and I wondered why I stopped,
what pulled me there.

I am not
particularly
extraordinary
I think to myself
looking at my
messy desk and
empty coffee cup

but I still like
when someone
stops to notice
me.

  1. There is so much in this poem. The imagery of touching the silver bone around your neck flowing into the why of it, “of what I already know” and “all I need is coded in my very cells.” All of it. I love it. Thank you.
