The Two Cornered Clouds

I  would  ask  myself  about  the  2 cornered   clouds,

persisting to remain awake for an hour

With 4 legs the size of my fingers.

Can I give myself to the                    steady sea of parenting

A colour I have never  b r e a t h e d  before................................                   till now

they shake out the folds      layering bright projections

                                            layering

                                            layering

                                            layering

quietly from there.

Ancestral heartbeat of warp and weft

a waterbottle full of salmon sun

A double knot             s l e e e e e e e e e e e e e e p s              amongst the books

Smell of their sleeps

Double Double

+ = +

 

fear knot

fear

zig zag

zig zag

zig zag
