my relationship with poetry lately

lately poetry has been my guiding light.  i don't know why and i don't know how, but it has been the greatest force driving me back into the light.  this poem describes beautifully my relationship with poetry lately.

how poetry comes to me

it comes blundering over the
boulders at night, it stays
frightened outside the 
range of my campfire
i go to meet it at the
edge of the light
