Hearing prayer

Up from the glittering abysses,
Ribbons of light enfold time's contortion for me.

I see the spark of recognition
When minds in blackness awake to one another -
They are mine.

The unnumbered speechless worlds twirl in my chamber
And ache to express.

Dancing worlds! Weep in your emptiness.
My heart, without center or circumference, delights

To see the craving thirst of lifelessness for life.

I watched the waters braid their hair
across glittering stones.

The giggling endless cord.

In that green shade,
green awakening,
flakes of the dancing sun
skipped in place
upon the stream.

He pours
his diamond seeds
by day
in ecstasy
Inside the angel's egg
There was nothing
The sky became dark
But it was evening
And it had
No significance
No significance and
No consolation

a shadowed face in day
bright as youth
strewn with lights and broken
the wheel
the cart
the garden nursery
wet of dawn
soil fat with darkness
fat with ruin
born again

solitude of embrace
her weeping smile
kiss of the hereafter

a wet afternoon
a lichen stone
a woman's face on a mossy quilt
which cannot feel
which can only be felt

In unknown darkness die revolving days -
Long-coursing, ever-hunting Night
Finds burning Phoebus' traced lines of light,
Fatigued, and dew-drop'd web of weeping glades


All is undone
a burning breeze winds and unwinds
the stars' trembling ribbons
eyes flash from oncoming cars
unaccountable shadows hold their breath
