Still at work on my next post ! which contains a few Botticelli-type sketches; and preparing also a new revision of my book Poems of Eclipse for ebook publishing.
Here is one of the poems – it is called: “Wedding Rings“:
NOTHING TOUCHES deeper.
Flung open, the frisson
of subtle body with lovers’ rub
reminding me of unknown
factor and fate.
To accomodate ‘another’
builds openly the natural state.
The root of eros, seen afresh,
surfs the wave –
the danger and thrill of mating.
In crystal ball, the babe is born.
Ripples, spheres in lake
melt in meeting
rain through rings of rain ;
the lover expands
through all my space
I am the rain.
I penetrate in play,
heedless of life’s damages,
fish that into little fishes swim,
compelling the sea of waves
throughout this room
Thus, wedding rings
can bring delight
or else despair: a mutual rape
where rain and fish no longer play.
Dry land is a covered well,
a dance floor null and void.
May 1999 – from Poems of Eclipse
Doodlings of time-space diagrams and relationships in an old notebook (1989).
With the Lens – the inner eye – we may view ourselves, each other and our odd combinations of confinement, co-dependency and release.
My adventure invites fellow travellers. I am a poet, an artist and a seer. I welcome conversation among the PHILO SOFIA, the lovers of wisdom.
