ANOTHER TIME - ANOTHER PLACE
This place that was my home
lies between the shadow
and the stone
that hugs the crumbling earth.
I walk alone
and see the monoliths that rise
above the line that marks my place.
I watch the sky
remembering how the stars spelt out my name
and how we spoke together
in that place where shadows hide the sun.
You showed me how to read the tumbling die,
and how to see those things as yet to come.
You taught me how to close my mind and fly,
and how to grasp the scorpions twisted tail.
