i’m of Handwoven birth
dust and dreams
poems and prayers
of people

i feel the earthborn current
as it powers down
in natural course

and life sometimes
as on funeral wake
the silence
and remembering absence

then too in tears and stories
letting go

the internal pandemonium
of shrewd collusion
conspiratorial pride
feigning humility
with the sully of self aggrandizement

and permanence
that stubborn child
still fighting
to overpower change

let life come
where joy is found

let life come
in the longer wait

let life come
in the deeper reach

let life come to you
