Among Women

What women wander?
Not many. All. A few.
Most would, now & then,
& no wonder.
Some, and I’m one,
Wander sitting still.
My small grandmother
Bought from every peddler 
Less for the ribbons and lace
Than for their scent
Of sleep where you will, 
Walk out when you want, choose
Your bread and your company. 

She warned me, “Have nothing to lose.”


….She loved her rooted garden, her
Grand children, her once
Wild once young man.
Women wander
As best they can.

About Dream Catcher

The heart knows what it wants. We can be surprised or welcoming to what we get. As life unfolds we can be prepared. We are fortunate to know and have what we truly desire. I enjoy waking up to the realization that my dreams are my reality.
