Should I?, Of Corsica.

Waking up on the sea I cast a look in your direction

Your mountains whispered of history, tugging me

compelling me to seek the center, to find a beating heart.

Leaving the port city your roads began to narrow

Harrowed, cliff-side was a graveyard of rusted cars

as I edged skyward toward new views.

History lesson one, done, pay attention through and through.

Leaving Corte, headed south with a belly full of biscuits

my going lacked quickness, yet frothed with high spirits

peaks in clouds, scenic, venturing further into your past

I sense it, flowers getting help with courtship

from the breeze and bumblebees.

Sap leaking from the pine trees tickling my nostrils

until the fresh rain saturates the day

atop another summit, wilderness enthralling.

History lesson two, done, keep the wild blooming.

I found myself in shelter from your thunder

inside a restaurant without power

unsure if it ever even had any…

The grey light shone through the tiny window

a room with 10 wooden chairs, a man and his hearth

sitting by warmth, dozing off as the world turns

No conversation, just the water hitting the roofs

the sky rumbling like falling boulders, sounding violence.

History lesson number three, done, appreciate a storm in silence.

I’ve almost come and gone… I haven’t found your beating heart…

Just the hearts of your creatures and peoples,timeless.

History is a book that is being written

But, Corsica, your history is in thebeating heart this wild island.
