if a heart falls in the forest, does it make a sound?


..

has this gone
the way of all lost
things: socks, sheep, coins,
useless keys? lay the truth
on me and bay me a still
something song that might
lead us home.

    The feeling of loss just permeates this. Well done.

  4. I had referenced the tree in the woods in another poem today and then saw your title…awesome serendipity and it caused me to take mine in a different direction so thank you!

    Any way, you poem…I love the use of the heart in place of the tree and the list of things typically lost…depth in your closing lines…moving piece in perfect brevity, de!
