She Spins


round – and – round she twirls

dreamer spinning fairy tales

 orbiting wonder

 


~~~
we came spinning
out of nothingness
scattering stars
like dust

the stars made a circle
and in the middle
we dance

the wheel of heaven
circles God
like a mill

if you grab a spoke
it will tear your hand off

turning and turning
it sunders
all attachment

were that wheel not in love
it would cry
“enough! how long this turning?”

every atom
turns bewildered

beggars circle tables
dogs circle carrion
the lover circles
his own heart

ashamed,
I circle shame

a ruined water wheel
whichever way I turn
is the river

if that rusty old sky
creaks to a stop
still, still I turn

and it is only God
circling Himself

Miracle Of Blue

Like blue stars
clustered together

before a
glistening gold
sun;

Water droplets
cling
lightly to
smooth, powdery
skin.

They wait, anticipating your
craving 
for their
juice of indigo,
and 
bittersweet
flesh,

So they may
blissfully
grace the
buds of your
taste.
