alone i walked
before the rivers were named
the raising up of mountains i beheld
mine eyes floated in mists
my ears heard the hiss of original rains
i was shown all creatures
and was known to them
i knew their purpose
and they mine
through the thousands and the billions have i been
within the living flesh, so as to teach
and in the swarming airs, so as to watch
to teach and to watch
the second comers.
Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on Spillwords.com, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
