another mindful serendipity...



the light rises and falls
the pen, too, in the starlit breeze
my body merges with this flow

what has taken me so long?

within the infinity of 
this enchanted world

...

everything i encounter
i experience as an emergence

a heavy fog that descends over
unsuspecting fences

a random artifact that needn't be 
negotiated or understood

...

i hold what comes inside the clear 
water of the spirit

i nurture the blueness of that timid but
intense flame

...

yes, this is how things fall
unexpectedly, after all

life pulses.
i walk
without force.

life burns.
i touch
without grasping.

life overflows.
i make space
for grace.

something "other" dwells within
those flickers of light we call thoughts
those radiant moments we so often reify

imagination...

a fantasy
a fable
a dream

perception...

a fragment
an image
a landscape

incubation...

a search
a quest
a journey

emergence...

a stairway
a window
a door

the cool winter nights 
sweeten into balmy spring

but there is one piece missing
from this image

an absence that lingers upon my skin
like a flawless fingerprint

this thirst
this famine
holds fast to my flesh

a cloven spirit

a past that guards its secrets
with chastity belts

a wanting
a reckoning

who will help me hold this emptiness?
