Poetry

To Return To Life

Staying awake the challenge –
the unscalable granite face
that rises from the earth
like a Phoenix each afternoon
mocking me
I clutch my coffee
shuffling and staggering to
go around through the dense
fog behind my eyes
A lake lies on the other
side if I can get there
Splash my face
Return to life
