peace of mind

if only it could have worked

but that train of thought is lost
and now a piece has gone missing
tunnelled into the earth, safe in velvet mud

and it will not be coaxed back out

for who would choose to leave
such a slippery womb? We each
have the potential

to grow a garden in our hearts, a festival
of berries and a hundred shades of green

but instead, we collect lost tokens
and wonder why we wander aimlessly
in search of meaning
