ONE DAY WE WILL BE I

 One day we will be I

One without the other.

You’ll be I

Or I will

Be I.

No longer we.

Yet, always we but not.

TRUTH

Because they bring truth

Could see the world

As it really is,

In our sight.

Truth is not that which we see

Like a watch telling time

It is something which we see by.

 

COVERS OF COMFORT

Little girl, a joy to behold, Bright

Blue eyes, beneath the tented bed covers

The flashlight flickers in the dark room

Book open, pictures glitter, words live.

The handsome horse, dapple-gray, red hooves

Lives in this book; he whispers,

“Little girl, all alone, join a friend

Ride the carousel

Into the world of lights and shadows

Circular travels, the tethered body

The unfettered soul.”

Beautiful horse, noble creature, wondrous friend

Speaking the coded language.

Black on white, squiggles and lines

Familiar sounds, loving messages.

Safely hidden from outside worlds.

Blond, graceful hands, dancer’s legs

Moving noiselessly toward the closed door: Mother

Hush, little girl, fear naught

Become immersed; be reassured

Life is a circular thing.
