abundant silence

Image

 

there is nothing like it

there are no words

not a whimper

not a whisper

 

decades of silence

no one knew

it was as though

i had been hit by a truck

 

immediate alarm

emergency sirens

 

coursed thru my body

and then the flashes

 

i didn’t know what i was

seeing, hearing, experiencing

wolf medicine

a dream

a knowing

 

but first

coyote

 

a drive thru

the woods

across the road

coyote ran

 

weeks later

i’m asleep

dreaming of

a forest

 

i came upon

a paper wolf

picked it up

just like a map

 

the creases

fell in

to fold itself

yet

 

as i held it up

the paper went

right thru

my body

 

from front to rear

on my body

from top to 

bottom was the wolf

 

head on my shoulder

my constant companion

perfect

medicine

 

1/1/12

making of the crazy

 

at his moment

i don’t know 

feels familiar

like with my dad

 

one week and

it’s the second

time

can i overlook?

 

i’m wrong & crazy

i get real small

you push away.

he pushed away!

 

truth & intensity

it’s all good

you wouldn’t know

it’s all new to you

 

it’s not safe

my hand off

the heat…

i’m not crazy.

 

 

the milky way fix

 

pulse. throb. pain.

you’re thrilled

i’m helpless

chained to you

 

algebra fixes

everything

now i understand

everything about you

 

deepest hazel eyes

trying to hide

your innocence

and longing

 

all you ever wanted

in a milky way

of your own making

you’re broken

 

and free.

 

 

 

from me to you

 

waves against rock

crash

strings of energy from

me to you

 

it’s ours!

the finest gossamer

liquid at times

always, a way to you

 

a string on a cello

beams sound

from my soul to yours

i see you

 

lovely scarred man

bending in delight

slave

to your own dream

 

i inhale the thread

your essence dances

inside me 

forever jubilant

 

 

broken wide open

 

standing in a field

of daisies

safe. beautiful.

sure. held.

 

trembling ground

breaks open

chasm at my feet

i’ve lost you

 

my side or yours

do i jump

or lose you.

lose myself to you

 

i’m broken

wide open

heaving with pain

i’m lost

 

no longer certain.

i long to be with you

corrupted. broken.

worship at  your feet
