An old friend

An old friend

Has come

To visit

Me

Again.

The restlessness of wanting to be

Able to write

The thoughts

That make me

Crackle and sizzle

From hair to toenail.

Each word

Brings

Hairs and nerves

Standing

On end.

Each thought

Makes me

Feel

More alive

And yet more empty and alone

As I search

From dark to light

And back again

For the elusive thing

That will bring me

Sleep

And peace

And the rest

That has eluded

Me

For all these years.

The rest

That only those

Who have hunted

Can understand.

That peace of

Words

That rest

And sleep

With us.

    Magnificent. (Says the fellow hunter who knows that search all too well.)
