Song of the Anchorite

Once upon a time
I had a place in the world
I knew as mine.
It disappeared,
fading as quietly as the fog
at the approach of the sun,
and I did not notice
until it was too late
to charm it back to life.

Now i wait,
directionless – homeless really –
with no safe place to claim.
This bleak cell is my domain,
with none for company
but those persistent ghosts
that roam at will
throughout all hours,
waking and sleeping.

An endless plain
of sameness,
a silence
so profound
you hear your blood
rollercoastering
through your veins:
surely that must be
hell!

What happens
to the painter
who cannot see,
the poet
who cannot speak?
When visions evaporate
and there is no other life
the soul – like the fog –
fades quietly away in the sun.
