blush blood

water rush

creeks storehouse

reach

beyond

limit

 

the harvest moon is coming

red spill

in time with helicopter tears

 

“may all those lost be found”

 

i will stay with the horses                       i will not leave

 

sky’s open scream

roads crack as if quake awakened

the earth pushes out

new birth blood

 

i’m sitting in water naked

red flow

salts open 

only ice water cools

a flood of memories

water stained ruined

dead

and so many unaccounted 

 

impermanence 

stands out to dry

hauled to the dump

where all the weatherbeaten dead

lay me down 

water rush 

recede

hush your cries now

 

we are waiting for your return home
