Day 27: altered state

presuppose steady state
add sparrowsong, wild gold
shaking the tree

steady ocean
must be stirred, add moon

and to dark winter
a slice of lemon easterly
pull the sun
north over the river

steady breathing
add whistling cranes
their victory song calligraphed
from one end of vision to the other

space hearts such that
light each sheds touches

this is the one song.

In other news, today I had the distinct privilege of taking part in Schmoozing with Poets, hosted by the effervescent Lee Ellen Pottie, who writes, paints, teaches and presides over a circle of creativity and love out in PEI (aka Abegweit).
