Reclamation in Two Acts

1
The ray of light
on return to the sun
discovered she wasn’t
so special at all

(agonizingly long intermission, theater in total darkness, misty haze in lieu of vibraphone tones to alert the Watchers that the show is resuming)

2
Whatever your form
you’re divine

Haiku For The Wound Down

chagall backdrop

We all get smaller
as the universe expands
the world fades both ends

Life’s center looms large
dimmed creation’s fire is quenched
where no sighs exist

Long still reckoned pause
deep rumble, ground gears, next shift
gentle momentum

Young girls with flourish
fan pleated flower bouquets
start us up again

Vishnu Purana

कल्प

Tomorrow, in retrospect,
wasn’t even the case.

You got all caught up on the eve
and then caved in.

It was supposed to flow
to where it turns back on itself.

That’s what we said;
we agreed to a point.

A kalpa only,
not a moment longer.
