Image for the poem the way of a poet

the way of a poet

like the lonely tumbleweed  
we go where the wind takes us  
with seeds left behind to take root  
in the minds of those we touch  

we roll on never to stay long  
it isn't in our nature  
we go where called  
solitary is our way  
nighttime out solace  

some people grasp for solid things  
to steady them in this dizzying world  
we reach for words  
to put us on firm ground  
we hold them
make love to them  

I've scorned the poetry  
that once set me free  
the thunder called  
I answered not  
the sun shone I strayed the path  

I reach for the poets I love  
they're not to be found  
& we roll on
