"The best way to move others, is to be moved ourselves;
words that come from the heart are most likely to reach the heart."

Our Work, Our Art, Our Lives

Page 16

Home by J. Don Coonrod

I trudge along a broken border
between fields plowed and planted
and the soaring dark forest nearby.

One, a mother’s breasts full of milk—
the other, cool dark recesses of life unknown,
unknowable, and fleeting shadows of night.

As I walk down the friendly  furrowed lanes of
carefully broken earth, I study the mysterious
woods uncertain—then  gaze into the sky and
shrug and  keep to the path of soft, worked loam
that will quickly take me home.
