Seven Directions

I find myself in quiet corners

capturing wayward lines on discarded napkins

or random library slips, realizing

there is magic to corral and wrestle upon the blank space –

the image of a modern day Pan

playing his flute upon the damp sand

of a log strewn beach,

gently swaying and twirling underneath the morning sun,

the silver of his otherworldly instrument

flashing upon every turn, hypnotizing the unaware.

There is enchantment sowing its undulating spells

across the land in seven directions,

enveloping those who take the time to really see,

who can seek a truth and watch the lies that some men tell

with their black hearts still beating,

burn to ash and fall away.

A peaceful spot in Stanley Park (Vancouver, B.C.) near Lost Lagoon.

    Kimberlee, I love how you take what you see in nature and transpose it into a picturesque poem. Your striking prose is so insightful that I often take a beat after reading your post to contemplate your words of truth. Thanks as always for sharing your vision!

    Wow Kim, you leave me speechless once more. Love the image of the man playing a flute on the beach underneath the morning sun. I can hear his haunting cry, while the leaders of the world are telling us lies. Thanks Kim. Your writing is so visual. 😘❤️

    • Thank you, Mom! It gladdens my heart to read your words and know that you are slowly getting back to some pleasures in your life…it’s been a rough go, that’s for sure. See you tomorrow!


  6. This is one of your best, Kim. A beautiful poem so very well expressed. It is like we can see it all unfolding before our eyes, your words have that magic in them.
