Your Voice Apart

.
As the glass door shut
I heard you call my name
Trapping your voice
Apart from your intention
A voice said my name
There was no message

I turned to face the glass
And stood waving to your back
You turned away again
The world shifted askew
My heart fell to the ground
Your truck crested the hill

Song Below The Keeper

.
.
The low alto
Weeping song
Dissonant
Self harmony
From a voice
Worn smooth
Pouring
Life river
Grief torrents
Wailing rush
Eddy into
Keeper spiral
Deep green
Swimming alone
Singing
Below darkness
Resonant music
Soft rumbles
Swim dancing
Light flickers
Night falls
Softening
Moments between
Memory stones
Laughing trees
Swallow
Pure water
River roots
Cradle
My body
Secure safe
Strong
I watch
Moonlight
Wash away
Wild storms
Watershed dreams
Great ocean
Calling
Flows over
And around
Deep in
Green darkness
Among
Tree Mother’s
Ancestral roots
I rest
Waiting
For nothing
Singing deeply
From the Heart

River Mud

.
.
Alone
As we
All are
Drifting
Drifting
In a mist
Swirling
As wishes
Manifest
Ethereal
As despair
Dreamed
Never to be
All same
Forgiveness
Unchanged
As always
Is my love
Tomorrow
Perfection
Of foggy
Illusions
Condensing
Rain
Drips from
Trees
Splashing
My face
Shivering
I sleep
My feet
Mired
In mud
Sinking slowly
My calloused
Hands open
Offering
The empty
Grasping
At nothing
As I wait
Supplicant
Of grace
Descending
Into the
Darkness
River mud
Thick
With deceit
Blocks
The dawn

I SEE

.
.
I kissed
A dream
Parting maya
Veils Swirled
Talking
Telling me
My True Love
Has always
Loved me
Though
Smirking
Only
At the corners
Of lips
Withholding
His own kiss
He whispered
Tenderly
One truth
You have
Every reason
To mistrust me
My arms
Encircled
A fantasy
Unconditionally
Loving
The void

Escape

.
.
This roof compresses my pain
Too tight knotted freedom binds
The sitting ghost composes wishes
Shuts the door heavy everywhere
The anguish I cannot contain
Swims in a liquid sky
Escaping through windows
The burning meteor glass
Shatters in rising suns
What sorrow has come again
Having never dispersed
The war twists dancing
On one leg stork stepping
Is joy an illusion of the insane
