(Written on the beach at Malibu, California 4/8/01)

I sit here in a splash of sun,

Companionable cat against my side,

And take a moment to renew myself.

In this small space of time that I have won

From daily life’s receding tide

I close my eyes and feel its wealth.

And I am so afraid

The wellspring of my once ago

So generous and free

May well have stayed its flow

And have abandoned me.

What is this deep and urgent need

I have that ceaselessly

Is part of me

In every thought and deed,

Demanding that I seek and roam

To find the path that brings me home?
