The Doorway

Frozen in the doorway separating dark and light There before my wondering eyes a most intriguing sight Centaur in mid gallop, on its back was found a clock It’d stopped its steady ticking and had silenced every tock Stuck at stroke of midnight—or maybe it was noon. Never really certain whether it was sun or […]

Chipping Silence

Cradled by my fingers, this awkward chunk of stone, Sharp and jagged edges hiding shapes unknown. Inside there’s potential, whispering as urge. Time and slow precision cause vision to emerge. Careful chipping silence reveals what’s ’neath the face. Water polished finish marks the resting place. Standing now before me—none before had stood; Pleased with this […]

Into the Dark of the Depths

Into the dark of the depths Sapping and draining my breath Diving away from the light Vanish from surface’s sight Alone in my silent descent Away from the cries of repent But there at the bottom so still A new light my empty soul fill Listen

Waters of Dust

Hanging up on a cross; Dripping from toes, my dross. Buried in waters of dust, Chipping away at crust. Breathing on me, a dove Sent from the moon above. Tending fin, wing, and claw. Eating good fruit I saw; Nibbling on blood and brain. Riding on wheel of pain. Farming thorns from the brink, Wanting […]

Complexity

Complexity perplexes thee; simplicity, it vexes me. Eliciting complicitly abandonment so recklessly. Inadequate, inanimate, and sorely not compassionate. So poorly though, thought lordly though, soul-infecting contaminant. Sufficiently inhibiting the visiting of ministry. A symphony of imagery: your bigotry so vicious, see? Efficiently prohibiting the limits of soliciting. Not riveting, just dwindling and dulling of my […]

Philosophia

Wisdom in each heartbeat pulsing through my veins Mending every sorrow, comforting each pain. Wisdom in each blood drop healed by Mother’s kiss, Or her tear, or stroking, or her embraced bliss Wisdom in each longing reaching from my chest, Passing through the vastness, to her ear to rest. Wisdom in each flushing—flustered, nervous, shy— […]

Shattered Spectacles

Temples made of glass are buried in the ground Churches made of clay where cornerstones are found Porcelain scriptures are holding up the arch Splintering tokens are moulding frail the heart Shattered spectacles, kaleidoscope of truth Rusty microscope shapes confidence of youth Mirror cracked and chipped reflecting state of mind Standing on the spire is […]

This Is Canada

This is Canada. Soil be ripping up Water is dripping yep Forests we flipping up This is Canada. First ones we devastate Brown ones incarcerate White ones we insulate This is Canada. Rainbows are shining through But ignore white, pink, blue Each one they’re lying to This is Canada. Sorry a thick facade Hiding the […]

Mother to the Stars

With silver arms and midnight hands, she pulled in outstretched reach The lapping waves and hushed surf to bare the hidden beach. Deep from the sand, she formed a star and raised it to her breast And nursed it dear and tenderly, just as she had the rest. She helped it grow under her touch, […]
