Artist's Description

Crystal in the trunk
waiting for the naked eye,
rooting for the fast walkers
still talkers,
humming for the insomniacs;
from the heavens
to dust—
like spectrum motes and dewdrops
for the forest
of dancing bears.


It is
the revealing—
the moment of the unveiling—

when the eyes of The Passing witness,
the cool hand Luke of the desert
and the house of the wandering waiting,
Holy to Holy to Holy
Becomes IS;

and a truth
in the hand
named Prism
is born.

And the trunk is still.

The path holds.
There is no need for breath.
The brutal beauty reveals itself
and the still one hears its tale.

All suns have passed though this story—
the journey to here.
Flesh to meaning.

Mirror to God—
the stairway made of misty glass.

And the eyes smile
At the earth;
cooking the will
of the Morpheus song.

The end of the journey.

And the soul-chords vibrate,
turning the head
cracking the egg
on the head
of sleep.

Where one may sleep
a real sleep.

A whole man’s sleep.

The sleep of the Full;
at rest upon the water,
where there is no more need
for sleep.

And the diamond pulses within
the pocket of trunk;
burrow it’s self before
the mirror


the mirror inside the mirror.

this image was not messed with at all, except for cropping; it simply is. The way the light hit it made it look like it was bearing a prism. A friend took this photo – I wrote the poem.
