On Waking

entry picture

On waking

beginnings fall,

fluttering like falling leaf

to the neon canvas,


fresh, virgin, 


no thoughts to provoke

or spoil.


Dreams through fingers


half remembered

half forgotten

some lived

some desired

and some wished away.


But now

with this

desert whiteness

glowing on the startled day

it is for me

and you

to find its start

and meet its end.


And in so doing

fill its light

with love

and all things good


To write our memories well.


◄ Pulse (of love)

Just blow the whistle ►
