    I feel like her
    the other,
    dust of orange sighs streak my soul
    skies are drawing the truth toward my
    infinite playground
    and all the while,
    my utter aloneness
    reminds me of the clay idols where
    my perception reigns

    Contemplating the dust bowl,
    feels depleted with choices that no longer
    serves the vibration that succeeds

    all temporal context and contrast
    whereby born are the
    rivers of ideas
    the resistance wanes
    Here in the desert of dreaming
    Here in the wake of the longing
    touched again
    with the knowledge remembered
    the breathing in and the breathing out
    the space of the not knowing
    which resides
    in-between the breaths
    of Solitude.

    I awake to her once again,
    complete and incomplete
    all at once
    holds fast
    and stays put
    and allows the cycle to deliver
    her home.
