L'aura del campo


'é a lua, é a lua, na quintana dos mortos'
♣ Federico García Lorca ♣


Higgins Street Bridge, April 25th  2009, Missoula, Montana


L'aura del campo. A breeze in the meadow. So it began the last day of Spring, 2005; on the 16th day of the month of Light of the year 162. This is a supplement to my daily journal written to a friend, my muse; notes I do not share. Here I will share what the breeze has whispered to me.

Green pancakes

Dad, add mint and hope — to dispel the stench
of last night's snores — that raspy voice of dreams,
mix in milk to make it creamy — bananas
to give some substance — baking powder
to fluff it up — pour on a hot griddle,
flip when done — a feast for Sunday morning's
breakfast — then lick the plate clean when finished;
but I beg — please leave some for your monkey.

To dream

...perchance to sleep; yet —
pillows become cotton clouds
as sheets billow
and blankets smother
peccadillos — of wanton days.

Come what may...
I'll hug you tight
throughout these fearsome nights.

I lean

I lean into Friday —
not sure that these days off
will comfort the reality
that all days suck
when you're not here
to share them —
then slowly I lean back
if only to ground myself.

Tuesday afternoon?

Clogged drain
and the power out.
Brain drain.
I begin to pout

Back upon the bed
to nap,
yet daydream instead —
of crap.

"If you're offered a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask what seat! Just get on."
~ Sheryl Sandberg



Save me a seat

He swims frigid sunshine — golden rays
on his golden head, his wings black against
a purple sky, this moment that will not last.

Surfing photons beyond this Galaxy's edge,
she haunts the cold of the Universe's hedge
against Humanity's spread — before the blast.

Father — Mother — All who fly through seas,
that seek to soar through oxblood moonlight.

I limn those moments
we spent together:
your face — your voice
as blank as this page,
scant as ink that fades.

Frozen over

Bleak bouquet of ice-pack clogging veins
of mountains weeping sweeping winter's
wreckage to the sea — a sea that waits
this day-bright day of white — the white
of glistening slopes, the cold of expectant
come-what-may — what may become
of this jam that clogs the sway of channels
as they melt — then swiftly flow to the sea.

Stalactite

Deep in caves
beyond dark nooks of bats
where no one ventures,
water drips from stony eyes

as if to touch
in centuries, millennia,
your upturned face,
a drip drip drip
of tears that try
to reach you.

I will always love you

through floods and drought,
hidden from the sad reproach of those
who cannot understand that

I will always love you

as my stalactite meets your stalagmite,
and there we'll stand together
like a pillar, still...

I will always love you

till eternity removes all memories
of stone and water.

LYRICS

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again
However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again
However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

A cinquain of 22 syllables.

Trapped inside

It snowed,
horizontal slant,
a cold front backing up.
Ground beef, onions cooked in a pan
till scorched.
