"I will make this world of my devising" - Sara Teasdale

The author photographed at the top of Mt. Pilatus, Switzerland in July of 2022

I want to live inside a poem

a simple place to call my home

when the city is too bright

and all I want to do

is sleep


surroundings that I recognize

though their features be disguised

through handpicked words

and phrases turned so sweet


in this world I am the one

who, though imperfect

holds the sun

and whispers stories to the moon



as the ruler of this realm

I'm free to sing

dance through the elm

or to close my eyes

feel the sun rise

and be


I want to live inside this poem

the world can wait, for this I own

a haven deep and endless

as the sea
