This poem is presently untitld.

---


Slow to rise
Rise like a cold autumn sun behind soft grey mists
creeping
crawling
inching over root and earth
Showing slick silver beads
coating stones, blades, and trees
Dawn's Breath


Its day
But sluggish I feel weightd
heavy lids I cant barely lift
Limbs stretch and grasp
breathing relaxed
I slowly sink back
and back
and back


So unsettld
My heart so raw
Open to those sounds
I swallowd my grief
and digestd my tension
in bittr sobs
I hurl my soul from a cliff
and fall forever


So bright
I see a future
Worlds arising, glowing
Passionate motion
embracing, nourishing
abundant beauty
Sweet, soft love
and boundless delight


So deep
Still tremors
Shake pillars
and threaten floodgates
battr barricades
Screeching up walls
dark and velvet
A broken promise


Turnd to rubble
In a heap
of fracturd dreams
All ash and soot
from bannrs burnt
and dirt scorchd
As if nothing
could grow again


I stand
Amidst avenues
where tears once flowd
She stood defiant
Now a past so dim
Buried by condominiums
and new pavement
Lockd away
in polishd stone


Anxious sleep
I toss and turn
in lush green forests
Mind numb
I fall and clutch the grass
Slipping, slipping
I sense
a presence


So dim
My hopes
Washd ashore
in endless crashing
Waves gently pulling the earth away
taking it back
to its bosom
To rest


Looking forward
Afraid of the light
I hide myself
in words and glass
Behind red eyes
a fire grows cold
No more warmth
Nothing grows


I pray
These waves to take me away
Cast me to the seas
to drift at ease
Forget these unseen chains
Sever these hidden tethers
Soar Free
over still watrs


Sound sleep
At last, in the hot morning sun
I cant stay low now
The world beckons
Dreams Drifiting Desertd Decisions
Eyes open, head still heavy
In 16 hours
I will fall back
again

I "felt" it.

Strength in subtlety.
