Second Letter (poem)



Previous post: First Letter


Second Letter


you’ve been back

in this country a


year now & still I

wait to see you


all I have received

is a letter telling me


you did the St. James

again with some friends


you made overseas I

remember when we did


that same track together

tramping through matagouri


thickets & cold swollen

streams where I kept losing


my footing but you were

always there ensuring I


didn’t get swept away

tumbling down mountains


to the sea

I need that –


someone who is there

to catch me & grab hold


before I fall



Joanne Fisher
