Where Are You Going

333. Where Are You Going

I found this poem that I wrote in 1977, thirty-six years ago. I’m not sure whether it has something to do with then, or with yesterday.

where are you going

why must you run

will you ever stop and slow down

what do you ache for

why do you cry

what do you cherish today

I cherish the song

and share it with strangers

who listen from space where they are

and I look through the clouds

and the tangles of living

to see the sky and a star

where are you going

what will you do

what are your furthermost dreams

how are you heading

how will you change

what will you reach for today

I’ll reach for the sun

and the buttercup that’s blooming

at the top of the field where I go

as I head for my mountain

I’ll hold out my hand

to a little girl that I know

where are you going

will you stay near

what is your ultimate goal

how can I find you

how will I know you

can I hold on somehow

I’ll blow of the tops of

a white dandelion

and follow the seeds where they go

I’ll climb and falter

and strut and stumble

and tiptoe where willow trees blow
