Worldseeker

I just realized I haven’t posted a poem on here since May. Here’s one from by book Hallucinogenic Dragonfly Intermezzo which can be bought on Amazon or better yet from me direct for $10 (shipping, autograph & a couple of drawings included), guaranteed to be worth 50 grand in the year 2043.

Worldseeker

You are not even blood.
You are the ocean of light that blood becomes.
You have no purpose but to serve.

And you serve us all by eternally seeking.
Preserving nothing.
Portraying best life’s most beautiful
half-remembered dreams.

You are an adagio trapped in marble.
You come to me in my most somnambulant hours.
A raven bearing your soul-image.

A tortoise-shell, a fractured
shinbone, the fiery eyes of a German mystic.

You are a doorway meant for hearing
opening inward.

  1. I don’t know why, but you don’t appear on my Reader even though I still follow you, so I missed your posts.

    This is great.

    “You are an adagio trapped in marble.
    You come to me in my most somnambulant hours.
    A raven bearing your soul-image.” — My favorite stanza.

    What was the inspiration?
