Fractured Thoughts


Fractured thoughts, sleepless times
Toss Me away
like a discarded husk of corn
Roast me over a slow fire,
That heat a cloak,
Warm me cockles on a cold winters night,

Take Me with you when your
mind soars like a bird's,
here and then not
Look in the far distance
that fjord, that valley carved

Lazy circles cast in hot air draughts
I leap and tumble,
a loose leaf in a whirlwind eddy
down to the depths and cast out
Spewed out like so much flotsam

krill may last forever,
but My sinuous slithering alter,
Takes the dank springy morass
Mind is it?
or a flowering red stained mass
teeming and writhing
Out of that comes My life
bearing gifts of self and peace
white-edged and safe.
