FIVE POEMS (i)

a strain of realization
beyond the eye-see

a touch of familiarity

delicate is such wonder

a poised daisy in a field
more expansive than mind

dropping tears in vast
nothing do

a gleam of immortality
dipped fog-dew

BORN UPON A RAFT

I WAS born upon a raft
a castaway upon the sea
many a year ago my birth
— upon the briny deep

And all I know
is the vast waters
all points across
an oceanic reality

But once I dreamed
born I be upon a land
where all I saw
was disharmony

all points across
vast humanity
where fear and pain
delivered a daily dose

I now realize my
birth-induced reality
is far better than
human-animal insanity
