http://theforbiddenstory.yuku.com/topic ... ic-transit
i had a thought while walking
and it Seemed at the time
to be literate, or poetic or evocative
in some nebulous sense
and i also remembered the lyrics to a song
the song having been written by a couple of professional
writers who were known for the powerful succinctness
of their verses
and it Seemed at the time to me to be a thought
worthy of my little blog [meaning right here]
i continued to think about my particular jewel
and though it lost none of its allure
it did over time seem to ask
what its own value was
was it the kind of thought that would encourage
a person to go on living or not
strongly ambivalent on that point
possibly negative
which rolls into the territory of
WELL THEN, WHAT GOOD IS IT
the answer being
not enough
not enough good at all
not enough good to be given
space to propagate and breath to breathe
on an open page of even this tiny blog
with its tiny passing exposure
to the minds of other people.
that is why it is not here.

coral reef broken

split pomegranates blooming

ruby bejeweled bones


swam islands in an iris

pink beneath its trees

green beneath their leaves

stand sanded facing inland


light in burnt shadows

azure boat passes sunset

cools still the scorched day


caramel girl flies the bright tree

conch bugle handy

guarding well the glass

of swell slaps, sun steeped these pools


birthed hips slingshot moves

on the dark beach dancing wild

to heat's latter breaths


float one sand blanket corner-

whip snap cracks downwind /

ship charts mark the 'X' -

set against depth's heartless steps


map myths ululate

seashore see-sawing dark blues

autumn storm looming


once upon a broad night's end -

time saved while hours spend /

thin horizon low -

wakes follow grey prawn spangled


time back bends itself

winding clocks around crisscross

stars graze a strand edge


land smells may be well enough /

one moment in thought -

another to will -

mark right the tiller's bearing


compassing the world

beyond land's pull of cellos

in flown indigo


wage a southerly current -

Easter Island yaws /

no warm language bears

these murmured names in the world
