unknown, already unbound…

I dream of roots, strangling me, veins
reaching out, from beyond the grave,
torturing me in this wild place…

as dreams move into another phase,
something

bursts from the ground, no sound,
or other people around,
a beautiful shoot, out, sprouts,
beginning its journey
into the unknown, already unbound…

Shadows

Linger in places
We dare not
Look, and

Yet they continue
To follow, like a
Mirror

Top to bottom

You move this way
It moves that
Way-

-ward toward another
Glimpse of beauty
In repose
Of

The splendor at
Your door

Afraid to answer
One and all
And, yet

The call comes again
And, again,
Without
A

Forestalled lingering
Imagination
Full
Of

Contemplation, and, yes
Even remorse
And, of
Course

Alone you are not
In your journey
Toward the
Lighted

Hall
As your shadow
Dances at the ball
Intertwined with

You,

Hand-and-hand
Just like a
Prefect

Symphony
As they play their
Last tune, and the
Music fades to black

The shadow is part
Of you, friend,
Embrace it
With a

Fervor of no
Compare
And, rest easy

In knowing this
Dance will last

As the shadow plays
With light in
A splendid
Contrast
