brief blink

20141017_090125

you are getting better at this:

moving these murmurs through time;

 

listening beyond the trickle of life-blood

to the more ever-lasting.

 

how else do you manage the fear?

 

it is going to end someday, this leg

of the path, these moments you have known,

 

these glorious-rugged breaths;

 

the clock coming to a slow stop

inside this gentle chest.

 

for a brief blink, you will take it all with you;

then you will begin the next forgetting:

 

the forging that allows you to keep existing

until you come face-to-face with the god-frame

 

from which you were sprung.
