Fence Posts

by victortouche

A broken fence
he walks through

the broken place
where I see too.

And every day
I make my plans

He'll see me
sitting in the sand

and bring along
his secret ways

he'll sail me...
away from this

Just sail me-
over here and over there

over blue
and deep green dark

and then with sea
and laughter start

to mend ourselves
that fell apart

We'll sit through dark
on seas so calm

And with the morning
dawn will come

as high and strong
as song can be

And , sail us
over the fence posts....


with due respect to Judy Garland and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
