As the pink elephant removes the chains that Shackle him to the unseen world we move forward. The sunset that praises Matisse keeps us grounded in the here and now. What we know- or do not know is of little value. The only relief from grief is the breath. Our only legacy.
Born a Saint
From the seeds and grains the soul is born. Ready to stand on the earth and pronounce itself. The body slumbers. Emptiness cannot understand what it does not see. This insubstantial earth. Barren and unknowing. Unmarked-waiting for ownership. We travel alone and unrecognized.
The Glass Slipper
It is true that the glass slipper Is not suited to my temperamental feet And the Prince is a bit of a heretic. But the pumpkin carriage warms my soul And the midnight chimes my heart. The familial clock conspires with the air to erase All that has been and gone before. With a King crowned replacing the fragile Prince Whose soul has been magnified to embrace the heart of a King.
