why do you peel back
the mended wound
for proof of wisdom
found at the breaking of the heart?

despite gravity,
despite entropy,
press forward.

the trees
already know your story,
but for everything else
tell it anyway.

In the beginning,
There is no beginning.
Wherever you dropped your weapon,
Pick up, and resume battle.

Erin Fisher

Erin Fisher moved from Ontario to Abbotsford in 2004. Encouraged to seriously engage in writing poetry around the age of 16 by her high school English teacher, the late Richard D. Woollatt. At that time she discovered Leonard Cohen, who remains a humbling influence and a huge favourite. Mr. Woollatt continued over the years to be an invaluable assessor, generous with his reviews and considerations. Writing is as much about what you leave out as what you kept in.
