Last Night

So last night I went for it.
I brought my sleeping bag to the field
and lay on the wet grass
under the full moon
and soothed by the rhythm
of the peeping frogs
I pulled the moon and the stars
deep into my pores,
and felt the wind in the trees
as if they were my own hair,
and way off in the distance,
I swear to you,
someone was playing a Jackson Five album.

  1. Hello.
    I came to your blog via links to "the favorite songs." Is this a poem you composed?

  2. I am sorry. It was the "Favorite Books" link. I mean, "Audacity of Hope" is one of my favorite books listed on my profile. When I clicked on that, your blog appeared. That's how I came to visit your blog...
