The Serious Poet In Canada - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

she pays attention to the details
what happens after the storm
she even follows where the geese
are migrating
listen to their loud sounds
and begin to write about them
the problem is
she cannot find the words
to describe reality
like a fog that settles downtown
which from a distance looks like
a mirage floating in the desert

but really, nothing is more real
that what we feel
even though we were not there
even though things are not really
what they appear to be

emotions become rivers
anger becomes rock
confusion becomes clouds
cities become dots and
hesitation are dashes
