FEBRUARY  2012


  Change Within


No two moment’s rest on the
same strangeness, the storm
within, the change without, a
radiant gloom advances on the
wind, making for home shores.
Like chance dormers edging 
afternoon clouds, a pair shall
test the love of an opportunity,  

meeting in the salty legends.

Flushing out the heat behind
the trees and eyes of the wild,   
a storm without and movement
taking breath away is cause for
change alone, but deep within –
the artifacts of damage have no
sound, no roar except in savage
lashes, no sting but nature’s

exalting the skin with branches.

Primal powers behind me stir 
the ritual frenzy, startle the
myrtles into petaled snow.
What inner wish has linked 
the same rush of coolness,
resolving sea of forces, taming,
synchronizing satisfactions, 
headlong changes deep within,

a poet’s faulty logic to blame?
