Secrets

A secret to be told
Just in ink
       To myself and no one else
       To try it on for size
       To see if it fits

Heart strings laid out on paper
Little notes to self
In clandestine code

Word puzzles
Ink stains
Finger prints of the mind

A secret to be told
Just in ink
       Ariadne’s thread
       Minotaur’s maze
       Gorgon’s knot

Soul well’s ink
Black marks on pristine snow
Revealing untold mysteries

No rhyme nor reason
No sense nor shame
Order out of chaos

A secret to be told
Just in ink
       Make of it what you would
       Take from it what you can
       Think of it what you will

A magpie’s treasure
A glimmer in the dark
A flutter of a wing at dawn

A ghost from the past
A hint of the future
A reminder of right now

A secret to be told
Just in ink.
