poem 15 of a poem a day for 2012

 


my gravity, Goddess  

painted the inside 
of my eyelids
every color 
of remember, but
I still forget 
so I am going
to just feel
my way 
to your 
beauty
instead

peeling 
each pause
each lean 
against a tree or
a hung moment why

I did 

feel for something 
about you in a reach
feel for something

you did 

without cause that
matched my murmuration
to your portal shifts
of pinned daylight
in the cloud carved 
rock homes 
above loams  
rooting dreams here 
sluiced rivers near
the call-tongues of oceans
that know 
the mountains climb
to get closer 
to the rain
