Nine


As a child I always thought the moon looked worried as she presided over us
Then I grew up and understood why

Humans fleeing from water like mice
Panicked, scurrying
But the animals and I – we felt it in our limbs

The Atlantic was warm
A soft humming simmer

The moon caressed the tides into a rolling ballet
Gently rocking each one over my feet
A lunar lullaby

Here wrapped up in her massive heavenly body
Underneath her rock beams, her careful watch
I am protected from all the rest

She swallows me up
I meet her outstretched arms at the horizons edge
White dress, blazing universe, still mind,
empty heart, open tides, roll clouds, roll water - gleams
Sky stands still it seems

Universe splits open and shows me her infinity
Spills her guts – confesses her forgiveness
Dizzy, I lose my balance

Tumble across Gods lips
I cannot tell what is Earth and what is sky
Never been a planet quite as lost as I

They say the end is near, but its so always been
Simultaneously pulling itself apart while it spins
A starry web

Our universe ever beginning - ending at its dawn
She wrapped me in truth and I asked for her safety
She kissed my face

We danced in ivory
Suspended in her light –surrounded by water
Drinking fermented lavender

Teetering on shooting stars
Riding ultra violet rays
There
I remembered just how forever it all is
