Digital photo collage by S. Auberle


is a strange place.
I am not old,
yet youth is surely gone.
It's an empty place, waiting
for the void to fill
and I wander through it,
a little frightened,
a little sad
that it all went so fast.
Before I learned wild
or who I really was.

footwear of forest springtime,
don’t run so quickly!

I love lady slipper orchids--love the idea of lady slipper orchids.

You can really nail a feeling (for lack of a better word) in your poems. "That it all went so fast. Before I learned wild. Or who I really was" resonated with me. I'm fairly young, but no longer a young person, and I've felt this as of late, just as you described it.
