Dragons

I keep finding
The way through
Up down

Building the entrance
And guarding the way

The wind it keeps
Blowing
Passing us on by

The serpents come riding
Up the mountain path

Ripened old dragons bring
Thunderous water

Innumerate

Long overdue
Contagious like laughter
Opened up to you

Exhale

Repeatedly

There is no place to rest
There is no safe spot
To stop

This journey is perilous
Fraught with
Cruel danger

The light is as simple
As the dark

Each in turn its own
Delusion to be mastered
Repeatedly

You

I spoke
You heard
You spoke
I heard

We did this over and over
Until I decided
Enough was enough
That I’d never not want this
With you and only you

Edge of Water

The journey led me
Here
I stand

The circular motion
Of the water captured
I

Fell into the pit and
By chancing happenstance
I gazed into a mouth
Filled with a thousand rows
Of jagged teeth

I danced through the teeth
And let the fire curl around
I came out
Unscathed

Purity

A life lived

To your eye
Swelled my tears

Not I
It was not I who cried
But love spilled over

A life loved

Purely

Dreams

Lifeline came drifting by
Floating on the edge of the coast
Empty with nothing but dreams

Clutch, pull, rise
Ashore

Lifeline came drifting by
Close until the morning lights
Rising up to stay alive
Up to thrive

Nothing but dreams
