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.

Prompts: EXACT CLAIM STAY

Being exact

Write to abstractions *sigh* like a coloring
book devoid of color, being told to stay
inside the lines with the smallest box
of stubby crayons: black, red, blue, green, yellow.

No fragrances, no sound, no touch ...
other than wax on off-white cheap rough paper.
Now to divide this by eight, claim it's a poem,
as if being exact makes a life worth living.

I don't mean to cause grief

When I leave,
my plants suffer,
in spite of plans to have someone water them or plans
to take them out of the window,
soak and let dry...

Some survive...

better than
my african violets
that dad kept alive for years until my sister decided
they needed to be outside in June's
burning sun.

Dead in a week,
my attic room cleaned out,
personal letters tossed and high school projects trashed,
emotionally pushed over a cliff,
no warning.

I speak soft
so my geraniums don't hear.
         they may be on their own this summer...
                   I swear I don't mean to cause them grief. It's a relief
when I come home and they've made an offering
of one last bloom.

They've survived.

I've been home
for a year now, a very long year now.
Do they suspect? Or are they like me, age 20, innocent about Death
and Life's relentless cruelty. Like them,
a survivor.
