From January 2009

Where are you?

I’m here, waiting.

Full moon waned to half

Dew, you, like stars

Independent of the sun

Shining because you

Can’t help it.

Long enough after you

Are gone

You show me you’ll

Never be gone

You don’t see the

Ropes that bind you

I do.

I will not ask for you

And you will not ask for me.

But without asking

Will we know?

The sky is blue on

This white paper

It glows. And

You think you are mere human;

Mortal and free

One day I too will have ropes

But I’ll see them.

Time should not unwind

Undoing the sacred can’t be right

Flow and burn as you do

And I, as you, will too.
