Here, on one fountain of a mourning mind
for Karthik, departing
Who has twisted us like this, so that -
no matter what we do - we have the bearing
of a man going away...so we live,
forever saying farewell. -- Rainer Maria Rilke
homage to Artur Rimbaud & Federico Garcia Lorca, & for Viren G.
"there will be no repose at the altars" - Artur Rimbaud
that time creates
This can only go well.
I hold your hand
"...descend, and of the curveship lend a myth to God." - Hart Crane
you appear without notice and with flowers
I fall for it and we become missionaries
for the goodfew
'like unto like'
but do not say it
my forbidden simile
one is not immune
to jealous couriers
who would come
This is how you remind me of who I really am:
Your smile in times of terror and pain
- reminds that that your spirit and mine are stronger than we have ever given ourselves credit for.
impregnate the earth
whispering and loving its children
grown among the wandering souls
each morning in spring
where it is quiet
where we sit in silence
to behold the morning sun
