18-19 toward the Omer

Heart’s fissure
splurting, bubbling,
boiling, spewing,
red-orange,
blue, yellow,
green
molten mud,
sulphur steam.
thermophiles thrive
enduring in the heat
enduring in the acid
enduring.

Body’s branches
brittle, breaking,
burning, bowing,
scalded,
scarred,
black.
forest opens
air
seeds open
life.

Soul’s canyons
cracked, ancient,
shifting, washed
red rock
grey
river
carved.
horses,
here,
wild.


Driving east:
Mountain says, I got your back
says, i’m here, even when the rain rolls in
even when the fires roar,
even, even when i’m a yearning
bubbling,
begging to be born.

says,
you,
you came to find the me in you
