Posts Tagged ‘Dante’


Crystal rings

under my soapy finger

like the singing bowls,

and the ribbon

of the flute.


I follow to the Bodhi tree,

to the circles of Dante,

to Mary Magdalene

and her Lover,

to a footprint in the desert,


and there, the chalice of Socrates,

Blake’s grain of sand,

a whirling Dervish,

the hem of a robe.


It is all there —

even Gaia herself

is not tethered.


Master, Master,

there are no words

on this journey,

no words at all –

hush, my Beloved,
