…and so it begins with essence—unmeasured, all-seeing, untranslatable, present.
What is really there–here? Everywhere. It gathers nowhere, takes all in. Releases the vast emptiness of center. Unpredictable but never random. Jumping through and crossing over. Falling down down down into the other side of what was never, into the opposite of what is.
Only the light. The compass that points in all directions, overlapping and then merging into pure vibration. A conduit of currents, waves with wings, voices without identifiable form or name. Pinpoints glittering against the darkness, floating on the gasp of final breaths, forever on the verge.
Belonging neither to man nor to god nor to anything in between.
Immersed in song.
This prose poem is a revision of a revision of a revision (no doubt to be continued). The art, on the other hand, was an experiment that exceeded my expectations. And so it goes.
For NaPoWriMo Day 15, on the eve of the full moon, where the prompt is to “write a poem about something you have absolutely no interest in”. To put it plainly,
I have no
interest in writing
about something I
have no interest in
But I’m enjoying reading the rants of my fellow poets on the subject.
