lovechild of the bale

time for the quiet
much said
much felt
too deep to fathom

Wandering into many rooms
Opening doors once shut
letting out the cold calculus of
loud yesterdays

Sweeping the floors of old
dirt of wasted time
and emotions
buried in the gathering hearth

Alone the womb is purged
a cry of courage in brave new lungs
Today the architecture of thought
not enough to mend dying flesh

Having released the flood of words
unexpected rode in
images charging the momentum
soaring on the tips of eagle wings
The ink a double sided reason
blotching the yellow brick road
a slick of untied shoes and buttons

Releasing mortal dreams
too tired to be a champion
no princess to be rescued
a valiant heart fighting the gray

Peace sounds in the distance
a steady pace will find
Silence the lesson in the
chapel of restoration
Lovechild of the sad bale
with no yarns in the wool of quiet
Quiet can be so very loud

Artist's Description

The internal chatter sometimes can be rather rude or mean and nasty.
We can place words to form the outer construct of our inner world and hope that we are designing a new definition.
The quiet can be deafening and also the reflective instrument.
This prose is about stopping to review the ‘process’ to see what is working and what is not working to build the bridge back to us.

Bale has some interesting definitions
Bale out, to remove water that has entered
Bale, an archaic synonym for evil
Bale, a bale of rocks, which is a group of rocks
