Just the word

Moving around in my days

In and out

Seeking definition

A thought that

It was part of

A few days ago

Gone now but it lingers

Was it part of something

More important

That needed thought

A context within

Let’s see

Not what value it has

The effect it has if missing

A person trapped

Within themselves

Punching out at demons

A need to reach out

In some way

The act leaving value behind

Even if it reaches

Only a pet or flower

Wild bird with seed

An invisible bond to being

A part of

A reminder needed deep

In our being

The social animal

Wired for contact

So I write

And publish to the void

It leaves behind

Something of value

I photograph and share

Something of value

Even a wave

Out the window

Or smile
