Quiet Places

Lately I have noticed
more of the quiet places
usually rural and rugged and wild
not for the adventure
or the grandeur
or a place to share
but places just for me
where I can go to be alone someday
places I might wander to when it is my time
no mess
no fuss
just leaving quietly some Friday night
when I know it’s time
it should be like that
some inner knowing
some clear sense
that tells you that it is time to go
and that it is okay
like the wild things do
