Laughter Followed Closely

March 25, 2012

Someone kicked

over

a big bucket of

mercy,

spilling it

all over

the kitchen

floor.

Everyone came

running

to see the slippery

surprise

Saucers sliding sideways;

Dishes dropped down;

Feet flying straight out

from where we supposed

they were planted –

(laughter

followed

closely),

And there

at the center

of everything

was me,

collapsed

into a

dizzy disaster.

—–

We sure made

a proper

mess

of things.

Thanks to Nance for the photo.

Aurora

March 18, 2012

With an

underhanded

overtone,

She flipped on

the switch

of love,

Leaving my coffee

cup

running  cold

as the tips of my fingers

Lit up like

candles

in the winter sky –

Aurora Borealis

Over the curve

Of her slip,

Her hips,

Her layered lips –

licking up

the oxygen,

and gasping

for breath.

Pulsing

flames of sweat

dripped

like hot wax

off the burnt side

of a

tilted moon.

Thanks to Nance for the image.

Glow

March 10, 2012

The furious drone

of night

consumes even the

least of these

we regard as holy;

Blackness, blackness,

and then

a snippet of glow –

This, the never-ending

sense of divine

dreary days sought forth

with eyes drawn down

to earth, land

seeking space and sky.

Bring us to the wonderment

to knowledge, the firmament

unites, disperses

while one hand

draws  freely.

Look up,

oh ye

of little faith.

Thanks to nance for the inspiring image.
