Song of the Nomad
‘The song of the nomad
precedes the scribblings of the settler.’
Horizon-songs left on the wind
brush against bare skin.
There's a bristling back in the mind,
a loping that pushes joggers aside
as distance fills up the eye
with an Indian stare so old
it's almost stone. When we leave the road
heading into the hills
new paths unfold between each stride.
