I AM SOUND AS I LAY SOFTLY IN PILLOW’S HEART …

..

The grey dawn mist of apples,

peering fresh, soaked, dew-lined and hearty

A mothers smile and fawns caress,

Limpid the water on the edge of time

I am humid, fervent, sweat-soaked and languid,

Washed by endless rivers of night

We jump like so many crazy locusts on electric wire,

Full, bound by every impulse

A night-hawks curr, the rush of blood to wounded scars

and bleeding wounds

Far into the night many moons,

hence the comets scare the starlings coal wings

A broken pencil, a fainting moment

and two antlers locked in boardroom crash

I am aware of all this as the derricks roar softly

and the sounds of lead mend in the night sky

Pity the saints who trod in firstborn purity,

only finding cave-worn habits and hostility

I am a moment, a flit, and birds beat of wing,

I am sound as I lay softly in pillow’s heart

#NOTE ~ I wrote this poem in 1987 when I was 36 years old. I think I was in touch with my feminine side. – Edenbray

The effluence of my short life .. . I'm a Writer and Artist - since 1966, now a Blogger ~ I write lots of poems, written essays, articles, reviews, opinion + comment .. . please join the shebang but more importantly please leave me a marker with a comment for my ego and my encouragement :- thanks, edenbray
