I am a word wanderer
peripatetic poetry is my voyage,
each syllable a serendipitous moment,
vowel vitality fuels every page while
a loquacious line forks off into two distances
leaving a double and doubtful sense
to my meanderings
all the better for the turn of phrase,
adding to the journey is a consonant chaos
of juxtaposition and alliteration,
a choice to turn left or right at every conjunction.
I am a word wanderer.
