Wandering Through Unfinished Works

through the unfinished starts –
partial paragraphs,
seeds of chapters,
full-blown outlines
forgotten and tucked away.

So many sentences of substance
looking for a place to settle.
finding no home.

Walking the path
from one season to another, I am
like my dog
on the bridge
drawn left and right to every scent,
periodically peering into the waters,
trying to decide where to jump in.

Not here,
not here,
not here,
nope, not here.
