Long Flight of the Arrow (new poem)











Long Flight of the Arrow
by Tim Kavi

some say they
are desperately seeking
seaching like ghosts
master archeologists
among the dust
of ancient landscapes

others are explorers
of every geology
across their paths
but cannot find
the missing Shangri-la
of the utopian plateau

there are the dreamers
the poets
the undying singers
playing lived out melodies
on the shipwrecks of love
and the injustice of it all

but the long flight
of the arrow
finds them anyway
and because it is Cupid's
arrow; all those
missing arms of embrace

find their human place.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO ALL ! From Tim Kavi
