unexpected bouquet of leaves . . . .

the voids
like waiting coffins
pitted the landscape of my life
half hidden between waving grasses
and fullness of many honeys
distracted by chattering monkees
they were ancient
thinly covered sinkholes
full ache of emptiness
like staring down
a dark bottomless well
with no rail to hold onto
it offered only the hell of endless plummet
I had not the courage of heart to face . . .
denial doth have it’s proper place
fading yet. . . .
I needed the sparkle of love
the elasticty of hope
the steadyness of companionship
a kind arm around my shoulder
for a gathering season
someone to say
Look up.
you are not rooted in place
stars are calling greater works from thee
you are one of the walking tree
test the width and breathe of thy loneliness
it is for a wilderness season
mend the torn nets that allowed slipped entry
you are GOOD hearted
have faith you are covered
by unseen hands
drink from your well
and the infinite well that is greater than yours
I have loved you as truly
as if I had a right to
as if you were my very own
by that purity
my love grew into you
established a home in you
and we are entwined
right as rain.
like trees absorb nutrients
and share along branch pathways
we are planted in similar soil
and mimic growth rings
that call out echo and follow
greater wisdom and higher freer order
higher law
than we can
with our tender
budded branch minds

Artist's Description

take what you need and leave the rest . . . .
i love it when a poem just shows up,
takes off it’s coat and hat
and gets busy.
