National Poetry Month: poem #6

This is one of my all time favorites. It comes to mind often. I guess I have struggles in keeping perspective... ;) 

Walking Backwards 
by Kristen 

retracing every step
slowly, slowly
I know I left it here
where did I have it
going back in time
trying to remember
just where it is
I left it.
Stumbling slowly
walking backwards
searching in every place, every corner
trying to find, discover
where it is that
I lost

I like that it has a meandering quality, like the search itself.
