The Interior

driving into the heart
of alaska's interior,
she was struck by
the quiet roads and quiet skies,
seeing more wildlife than fellow travelers.

and, as she looked out
into the expansive terrain,
dotted with pine trees and jagged mountains,
she had to wonder if this
was not akin to travels
into her own heart's interior.

for, like alaska's heart, her own
offered so much and ached for
an intrepid traveler who could
patiently await its slow unveiling.
