Wild Season


It never entered my head
that you had lost your mind.
Reckless, but surely not mad,
your crazy notions inspired my own insanity.

Our disturbed imaginings multiplied
like wild March Hares.

We upset the cozy tea party.

Friends fled, guests scattered,
and finally it was just us,
alone at a dirty table with our empty cups.

I'm no longer blind to what should've been clear.
With no map to guide me back and no way to follow your trail,
I'm alone in a feral land.

I must tame my own wilderness.


This is a Sunday Scribblings post.

Alone in a feral land, that doesn't sound good but it is a lot better now he has gone. So don't even think about his trail, go in the opposite direction. This was a great word picture and I enjoyed it immensely

As a point of clarification, this poem is like all my fiction: a riff off an idea, my memories and the tales people tell me.

It would take some stretching to apply this to any recent situation.

Havoc can usually be repaired..perhaps you have to clear one table - as it were - in order to create the next..how else could you learn and climb out the rabbit hole..or get to the right side of the looking glass..Jae

verification makes it really hard to comment. you'd get more comments if you turned it off. i had to do this several times to get it to work.

I like the thought of upsetting the cozy tea party. Beautiful chaos. I think that there is much hope for order, afterwards.

That's what happens when you go jumping into rabbit holes.

Susan (SHG) should see this one. I think she'd see lots of different levels here.
