SPLIT ROCK

WITH a gentle divine love
your desert flower bloomed
digging deep within the sands
of my barren land

Such sweet roots encased my heart
and with time — like a rock
split my heart into two

TERROR PLAGUE

I HAVE discovered
the terror-plague
not a shadow
nor a beast
but the fear
of eternal pain

MOTHER’S LOVE

THE abyss of the maternal
from which we spring forth
the deepest love eternal

DEEP WITHIN

THAT which dwells
so deep within
not placed there
by God or birth
but through the pain
still unresolved

ALL THINGS CONSIDERED

HUMAN speech
so shallow
Written word
so deep
A prick of time
fleeting
But passion
for love eternal

MY SOURCE

THE deep I need
a source in life
the well I draw
to quench my words

If it dries
my life will wither
and my spirit to dust
will crumble

SPACE OF A CRAWL

I DIED not upon a cross
but within the space
of a crawl
The pain was more
than a swollen wave
that crashes upon a shore
But the pull remains
and my shoreline’s thinner
If a fish I would drown
within the sand
that a whale would devise
a plan to evade your tide
So the world I crucify
and slip into an ocean deep

THE RAREST COLOR

I SAW today
the rarest color
of them all
that which nature
bestows to one
It was not a star
nor human
but a creature
most dapper

‘Twas the peacock’s
neck blue region
only visible upon
a brightly lit day
is the most
heavenly blue!

COUNCIL IN LIFE

I HAVE bypassed
the thinker
for he gave me
bad advice
Now a joy
I can not measure
a feeling
beyond pleasure!
My council
in life’s matters
now rest
upon shoulders
of my ancient soul
— such wisdom
to live a life
of such leisure
is an immense treasure!:: 01-25-2014 ::


IF I DIE

IF I die
before I awaken
then surely I have died
before living
