The Element of Self

Kristen Marie Olson

 

 

Humming to herself while writing poems in the ashes of a fire that once burned powerful and strong

Collecting dust out in the field and placing it in piles of what could have been

Searching under rocks and high up in the trees for a clue to move on

Walking around in circles, caring on aimlessly only to find her own foot prints in the sand

Escaping from the valley she traveled oh so much, she retreats to the mountain still searching for a sign

High above civilization she echoes just one, knowing nothing, hoping for everything

She paints pictures with the flowers and tells stories with the star to anyone willing to listen

Dancing to the cricket’s song and following the fireflies into the forest, she trusts her own two feet

She comes across a puddle lit solely by the moon; she sees the reflection of herself

She is at peace
