HAVE YOU EVER

Have you ever danced naked
on the tip of a flame
or skipped on ripples
of a butterfly’s wake,
have you ever rode bareback
the wrath of a hurricane
or swam the molten rock
of a volcano’s lake?

Have you ever leapt blind
from a shooting star
or slipped down the throat
of a crescent moon,
have you ever touched
the screaming of a devil’s scar
or be trapped
in a spider’s cocoon?

Have you ever flown
in a hungry vulture’s eyes
or walked in a nightmare
of a lonely ghost’s dread,
have you ever drank
the sobs of a whale’s last cries
or desperately held
a heartbreak in a madman’s head?

Well…. have you ever?
I can’t say I’ve had such days,
but hell,
some moments feel like it!
If not for you
and Love’s caring ways
I’d crumble in a heap
bit…. by…. bit.

HAVE YOU EVER

Artist's Description

… been a full on week… my beautiful daughter left for Europe for six months… my son is returning to Thailand to work… my beautiful Aunt of 95 years passed on to lighter dreams. It seems things are just disappearing from my sight. I thought this poem I write a few weeks back fitted with how I feel. I will get back soon. Much love. xoxo
