VISIONARY TRAVELS

The poetry that sings from the soul

Dwells in a tangle down below

The swirling shadow of the undertow

 

The face that appears in the fire

With yellow eyes born in the pyre

Is a spirit from the squalor of mire

 

The hand that wields the hatchet

Deconstructs its world with a ratchet

Without a will to match it.

 

The silhouettes we see at noon

Visit us from the moon

And act like they live in cartoons.

 

A journey without destination

Requires steadfast dedication

Without temptation for hibernation.

 

The footprints we leave in the sea

Are symbolic of our mortality:

Brief, then gone for eternity.

 

Now, I wake me up to stand

Guided by the Morning’s hand

We are few who understand.
