What’s Requisite – a poem by Michael Seeger

What’s Requisite

What’s requisite
is water

and some shade
moving to

a time as slow
as roots

along a stream
where trout

swim slowly
in a dream

of knowing
not caught

but foreseen.

.

Michael Seeger lives with his lovely wife, Catherine, and still-precocious 16 year-old daughter, Jenetta, in a house with a magnificent Maine Coon (Jill) and two high-spirited Chihuahuas (Coco and Blue). He is an educator (like his wife) residing in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs, California. Some of his poems have appeared recently either published or included in print anthologies like the Lummox Press, Better Than Starbucks, and The Literary Hatchet.
