Walk – Poetry by Leslie Philibert

Musings of a Solitary Walker – Rene Magritte

trying to make
something out of nothing

a funeral without a burial
the hard pull of tough bracken
a body of gnarled wood
some damp ash of remorse

so I stop and consider the flat river

people die and turn into stones
and trees and never return, that`s all
