Monday Musings: Escape (A Poem)

Holland Lake - dakotamidnyght.com

let us fly
escape
slip out between the bars of nine to five
duck the glaring gatekeepers
the shoulds and to dos
obligations and burden

let us transform
self-destruct
under murmuring sweet-scented pines
drink deeply of crystal teeth-shattering lakes
run naked under the benevolent gaze of the moon

let us go giddy
drunk
intoxicated on stillness
reassemble in
the deep embrace of the forest

    1. Nina, thank you SO much. Since I just picked poetry up again recently, I’m still a little tentative about putting it out there!

Have something to say? I'd love to hear it!
