mountain face

staring at a mountain face

steeped in distant ice

glimmering from the lowering sun

turning the ridge line dark

and pronouncing the steepness

of vertical reaching

i long to escape its arctic

but not its staggering beauty

lonesome and peering

from my human gaze

the sheer wildness

beckons me on ponder

but not survive

the harsh and frozen steeple

of majestic sight

that is before me

barren

the snow on the mountain lights up

like a heavenly halo

why do i feel so sad?

underneath my resilience

lies fragility once again

to remind me that things hurt

of the children i’ve lost

of the one i crave

wanting my family

to be complete

so i can stop looking

all over the world for it

maybe the restless will sleep

once they arrive

in my empty arms

no longer barren

but holding life

the vow

the vow

conscious coupling

undoes yourself

from its own

tow and bind

by another vein

lift and lean

until the who

begins to blend

no peripheral

or honest inward

you begin to see yourself

through another set of eyes

it’s less hurting

when the forgiving takes over

the spirit doesn’t separate

color becomes the same

no wound

the other doesn’t feel

immeasurable and bottomless

like the sea

new creation

close your eyes little one

you’re safe from harm now

i’ll give you what you need

tired from running now sleep

on the inside shadows still occur

but your light has grown

much brighter now

you can shed the old skin

her death made you

strong and wise

as the cocoon was forming

the shell began to thicken

the colors became luminous

and vivid like your soul

was meant to shine

in pure radiance and love

the skin became warmth

that no one could penetrate

only healing and recluse

your own thoughts dancing

in the blackness

a muffled melody began

to fill your ears

a harmonic vibration

that sent waves

through your heart filling you

with fresh light

and burning warmth

it washed away the rawness

and numbness

of old wounds

peace filled you in a hot white

burning flame at the center

of your love from this

magnificent core

in an instant you were made new

radical and holy

on the re-emergence

your soft eyelids fluttered

open from dreamy slumber

the olive brown and gold

flicker in your eyes burned hazel

the dreams you have culminated

long to spill forth and become something

your hair like copper flames

float languidly as an underwater dream

and begin to extend outward like a sun

reaching to warm a cold planet

stars awake to your beauty

even in broad daylight

silver rain washes over your skin

snowflakes melt and kiss your face

in the white pure polar light

you become as new as a season beginning

navigating climates

oceans

land masses

star fields

explorations of planets

both dead and fertile

timeless eternal brazen in passion

as new as a moment in time

a rebirth and a death

what will become

of your new creation?
