Unnamed Poem


I knocked on my heart
And asked for a poem
Any poem.
I gazed at the world
Mist, mountain, sea.
The poems laughed
and ran away from me.
At last I turned to God
for His leftovers.
They were too great
for my pen.
I stopped asking.
Then I heard the morning dove
Blowing hollow in the still mist,
And the late-summer leaves
Rustling for escape.
Rain pattered on my heart.
And a poem bloomed there.
