Fishing in the Fog

eyes have sunken
through stilly water

open
asleep

yet drifting awake
inside that other world
thinner than th’ inlying soul
of time

tracking the footsteps
of a Meaning

after surfacing
will pen and paper
at the ready
Remember?

First Sight

you spoke
to me
smitten I was
by the scent
of your words
blinding me
speechless
… for a moment

your eyes
reflect’d mine
slowly drown’d
in a thickset fog
… for a moment

my mind
became abstract
a caldron
of turbulent thoughts
then mindless
… for a moment

I was in love
I am in love
forever
at least
… for a moment

Contemplation

over half a century ‘tis been
since to th’ unknown
Time first spoke
in the vocabulary of tears

and now Heaven’s Brew crashes
o’er my lodgings
into the blueness
stirring ever brightly
‘twixt th’ Eastern Valley

and tears are spoken again
on Time’s wake
binding myself with old vows         
will ever I keep?
