Beyond the unforgiving core

of gravity

she births herself

through molten rock

and hard-pan crust

into the space that soars

above the rant of tempests,

of burning bushes,

sun, moon,

the spin of stars

and far beyond

the fabled edges

of the universe

no longer up or down

but circling straight

into the riddle

of her Self.

Light Streaming Through the Crown of a Tree

Melt into its bark –

each loved tree will fold you in,

lift you to the sky.

Thanks to everyone who reads my blog, and for your kind comments.

I’ll continue to be scarce for a little while as we are selling our house, packing, cleaning, lamenting…. Hoping to take my elm trees with me.

Beyond the unforgiving

core of gravity

she births herself

through molten rock

and hard-pan crust

into the atmosphere

above the rant

of storms,

the burning bush,

the moon and sun

and spin of stars

far beyond

the fabled edges

of the universe

no longer up or down

but circling straight

into the riddle

of her Self.

In her long climb

she stumbles on memories,

sends them clattering

to the ravine.

She slips on illusions

melting and dripping

like tiny prisms

in need of a light.

But on the sixth day

her true match is struck

and she finally sees:

nothing in heaven is moot.

Like Truth

Like truth

you do not sink

into perspective,

rather do you rise.
