Allusion for Robert Frost

The woods were lovely, dark and deep,
And I’ve fulfilled my pledge to keep,
With miles behind me now I sleep,
With miles behind me now I sleep.

With great humility, respect and love for Robert Frost
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Way Station

Here at the ceiling, before flying away,
I think that I’ll bob just a bit

Go It Alone

chagall backdrop

All that had been steady, settled-in around,
comes suddenly rushing

The hundreds of birds in the canopy
react as one spontaneous response
to startling

The indescribable things underfoot thunder by
as a single heterogeneous herd

I brace and move against this flow,
and strangely, never am touched,
sadly

I advance to the source
of impetus

At the edge

It’s not hard to step
off the edge

The sign says
no backtrack from here

If this were real life
I would fly
