Linda Hogan

The pull of all water toward the ocean,
the hope that somewhere
there is a world undisturbed,
that when we enter, it closes behind us
as if we were never here.
Someplace a source,
a place without despair,
the beginning.

— Linda Hogan, from “Sounding the Depths,” Rounding the Human Corners (Coffee House Press, 2008)
