1 Poem by Tim Dyson

VOYAGE

Something in me or someone
Out there, was calling
Down through the valleys
And glens that were not there

A strange terrain, darkling plain
Beyond dreaming secrets
Or the rumors of the age
Echoing in the soul

As the sprite and nymph
Somersaulted down the green
Edge above the salted sea
A miracle came unto me

Answers to questions
No longer being asked
Whispered through dark whiteness
About further travel within

Along the twisting lanes
And the muddied road of pain
There was a hidden path
Passing the muscle and vein

To a place where feather and leaf
Drifted slowly on a hopeful tide
Into that cove behind the eyes
A green blazing surprise
