oh poets…sing to me

autumn-maples-with-poem-slips tosa mitsuoki

oh poets…sing to me

nourish me with words

my soul…that is

my mind

for I crave authentic

even vinegar and rust…

drench me with images

rain showers of amethysts and pearls

north wind pulsing prairie grass

glass shards reflecting light…

sing syllables to me

in harmonies

and heartbeats

that resonate

to my marrow bones

    north wind pulsing prairie grass

    glass shards reflecting light…
