THE GEM 6 OCTOBER 2018 : LOOK AT THE STARS! LOOK, LOOK UP AT THE SKIES! OH LOOK AT ALL THE FIRE-FOLK SITTING IN THE AIR! THE BRIGHT BOROUGHS, THE CIRCLE-CITADELS THERE! GERARD MANLEY HOPKINS

Sometimes you get there in spite of the route
Losing track of your life and what it’s about
The road seems to know when to straighten right out…
I could wonder if all of it led me to you
I could show you the arrows and circles I drew
I didn’t have a map, it’s the best I could do
On the fly and on the run

Mary Chapin Carpenter
