CICADA


CICADA

 

It comes right from their bellies

that call to life on these dog days

When Summer gives all of herself

to the hot damp of evenings

and the just enough breeze that

gives cool moist on to your surfaces

 

Their tymbal drum

 and drum

and drum 

right from the gut of them 

that place of feeling that sings

the days and nights to love

in their awaking from dirt

and bark on to the sea of grass

and leaves

 

Of the return to their song 

in that drum

drum

drum

feel into the blue to midnight 

Into the in-between of how

the vital brilliance of corals

purples, violets, and oranges 

celebrate on the horizons edge

in the cadence of time 

for the Earth’s roll 

around the

Sun.

 

Expanding and contracting

their bellies for the long hot days

for us to know their song

in the short of summer heat

and the longing for 

love to be found

in the 

drum

drum 

drum

Sleepless on the Evolving Earth…. a pantoum

Sleepless on the Evolving Earth…

The wind tore the trees to the roof battering the night

Sleep had no where to lay her pillow down

Hoping for The dream that leads The Way

Least the riot of elements tear the house down.

Sleep had no where to lay her pillow down

The raptured sky broken open in vivid statements

Least the riot of elements tear the house down

Full moon all hails what will soon wane again

The raptured sky broken open in vivid statements

The Earth calls all her elements for us to feel

Full moon all hails what will soon wane again

Awaking you to realize the evolution

The Earth calls all her elements for us to feel

Least you think she doesn’t know human happenings

Awaking you to realize the evolution

Think to catch your breath on the winds ascending

Least you Think she doesn’t know human happenings

Hoping for the dream that leads The Way

Think to catch your breath on the winds ascending

The wind tore the trees to the roof battering the night
