In Subtle Ways

A little dog yelps in this scene despair
hereabouts seeping in ways I’m aware
words cannot convey in a wilderness
of emotions unclaimed I’m filterless

a tenderfoot bewildered in the dark
flinching and breathless yielding til the spark
lights my kindling gathered without a clue
for its necessity until just through

the clouds first rays of sun humble I bow
interconnected in the weave somehow
awake at last I see all of the lies
I’ve learned so well vanish before my eyes
