Tonight . . .
the full moon stares down with a stillness that
is as hard as ice . . a cold rock sailing
toward his destiny . . . a silver pearl,
he hides himself in the shadow of the round belly
of his world . . and
turning blood red . . he blushes at his folly . . .
soon drifting away . . .
my moon is sailing behind a bank of fog . . .
a tenuous thing and yet like a veil
or a misty shroud . . these clouds will deny the eyes
the knowledge of vision . . . and the thing that
is not seen . . ceases to exist . ..
an ivory figurine
motionless . . . forgotten . ..
sits in a dusty corner
like an old tooth
she fades away
in shades of yellow;
lost in her slumber
she dreams down slender roads
the dust of long lost hopes
flying up from beneath her moving feet . .
her amber colored flesh peels away
like wings . . .
like the pages of a book like the leaves of an autumn tree ..
lifting . . fluttering
anticipating a breeze the bare bones of memories . . .
driving ever upward . . .
There are whispers in the wind
the moon is sighing . . .
his light drips thickly like silver tears
from the leaves of the ivy . . .
their tendrils burrow down into the
heart of the tall black pine . . . shadows dark. . .
invisible points concealed beneath the roots . . .
resins scenting the air . . . with the wispiness of smoke . . .
longing to be free . .
beating like a heart throbbing . . .
like bloody hands scrabbling. . .
like fingernails clawing. . .
somewhere is heard a distant melody . . .
a window slowly opens and
a thousand birds fly free . . .
feathers filling slowly
with silky winds . . . parachutes ripe with the fullness of desire
there is the sky there is the endless sky and in the center . . . an eternity . . .
Just a note: translators are not perfect when it comes to meaning and intent . . . interpretation of poetry, itself, is difficult and tricky . . .
