born in the year of deluge

May 16, 2008 5 comments

born in the year of deluge
hope slips away like eels
beyond grasp and spear

all learn to hold air inside
nurturing internal voices
meditate on escaping breath

born in the year of deluge
seeds of expectation wash away
nothing is stable

seaweed and broken shells
tangle and punctuate
sorrows for the forgotten

beginning in deluge there is
always too much
and the scent of mildew carries death

mold greens underarms
and all crevices
fester and rot

born in the year of deluge
one always seeks shelter
umbrellas overhanging eaves

the comforting arms
of mermaids with scaly tails
dreams of love in salty places
