These Words

These words we read from some desire

. . that someone live

. . the this entire.

Read is our reach,

. . our grasp, our be

. . life that is know

. . wings that are free.

Rain Falls Our Springs

Falls must our field, our tree,

. . our walk, our hold, our see.

Falls chance our color-bows,

. . our blooms, our white deep snows.

Falls us to gather things

. . to set, to let, our springs.

Ours

Existence bare, most plain,

. . . just what is thing.

Existence only, all,

. . . whole running ball.

Existence life, out come,

. . . out earth, out sun.

Existence mind, live see,

. . . light you, light me.

Existence we, right thrown,

. . . to show, know, own.

We of Love

Stand in deep winter my night to glassed light,

. . his spring to door, his smile, his bright,

. . his bring inside to our words and eyes

. . into our worlds and ways, and to our yes.

Unfold the bloom night to day, room by room,

. . on the floors, in falls or joys,

. . on our shores, wave by wave,

. . year on year, we of we of love.

Lifehold

No council, no say.

All earth turn, night trail day.

Unceasing sea tease land away

     to watery deep stage lay,

     dark for none.

 

Bit ties bit, string twists string,

     winding time into spring.

Like by like, life-clock sets,

     tracing past for future nets.

 

Lights slip, waters slip

     slight chambers live-green

    for green, for green.

Green-thrive, alive,

    earth stake, break, take;

    place in own pace,

    own bound, own round.

Light-full green-sleep,

    keep in watchless waves

    of green live, green gone,

    dreamless.                                    (Aug. 2001, 2016)

Placement

Lush, sheenuous pluming-greens

    slip peeks

of the milk-limpid moon

    to him,

and delirious lofty fan-flares

    wreck quakes

of tensile steel-lance cries

    to him.

 

A stone stardop

    soft-sprays

a whiff-frail light,

    flushing his chest.

 

He sweeps touchless drift-shades,

    and flash-streaks

    a glancing crester,

    sailing breath-brimmed space,

    splitting, splash-sparkling

    on a wind-spilled pool

    of silver rock.

 

Fan-flares fly to open sky.

Swirl-leaves flow,

    flicker and toss,

    and whispers cease on fluffs of moss.            (c. 1968)
