vivid stained-glass pales,

sun saps slight, frail pigments – HA!

vitality fails.

vernal equinox 2012

tonight moon is chagrined

but somewhere sun shines

as marley sings i smoke

in the driveway

tiny frogs trill

the swamps seethe

with insect life

awakened early this year

we are running short of time.

you there, silver poet of any continent,

i see your lunar explosions

i see mercury and mars above

but venus sits here with me

in the middle of north america

i sit here

now speaking to you,

silver poet of australia,

i am telling you

that i love the night

but my awareness has lightened,

it struggles less, and with this

new easing of burdens

i have discovered

my own fire

my own spark

to light the void

i am

the blazing golden sun

now i burst forth

with john butler trio tunes

vibrating my entire being

i am now sun and moon

north and south

east and west

i am evolving,

the seasons twist together,

we are entwined,

everyone

we are running short on time.

ablutions, this morning

her mouth was the ocean,

i was the board

with two feet firmly planted

on the surface.

the darting tongue was the wind

in my face; the gleam of eyes

was the crest

and then the falling

thru oblivion

awakening upon sunbleached sand.
