Fire flies…

Embers borne on

the tails of winged insects

etch our Fate on the night’s bowed back.

Fireflies.

Longing — A Poem

Longing 2.jpg

“Longing” — C.Birde, 6/18

 

With ladder, broom,

and twine,

we train —

the vines and I;

together climb

toward light,

extend and weave,

tendrils seeking,

inch by precious inch,

height and purchase,

something solid

on which to cling

in our abiding

search.

Scintillate — A Dream

“Scintillation” — C.Birde, 3/18

 

Void.

Expanse.

Boundless field of dark – inky, plush, coal-black. Pressed against eyelids. Consuming vision.

Light pricks — winks and blinks and scintillates. Golden, glittering. A multiplicity of individual, shivering stars within and against the dark — entering breath and pores, veins and mind.

Carry it.

Upon waking, carry it from dream, out into the world. Feed it to every word, every thought and action. Let it bloom in outstretched hands, shape tongue’s speech, heart’s beat.

Then everything,

everything

will shift…

Change…

Heal…
