Did she walk far enough?

perhaps farther

Did she stop to look

down the road

at distant burrows

she might find

the various ins and outs

many other ways

acorns under rocks

to teach the trees to grow

she hoped to find

Did she walk far enough?

already, a windblown leaf

an empty river

pulling on her sleave

leading down, down

this is good it made me feel as though she was running from something like she needed to escape. very well done.

Hi there!
You've done great poetry!
I have all my poetry books in my hotel in Calafate because I really enjoy reading.
