weeping cherry


you, my dear
are royalty

even on days like this
when your heart
is hollow

your soul still spreads
golden and glowing
across the fields

on days like this
the grass must still bow down

the world
kneels at your feet
as its sun

these simple blades and stalks
under the caress
of your eyes

as if blessed

tiger in my backyard

Actually at the zoo--but I really WAS that close!

behind your mind

just lean a bit this way
until you fall

into a hidden room
behind your mind

where only you can enter

just you
and the universe
that's all

and did I mention
there is no floor

only a steady flow
of love
to hold you

no walls to keep
your thoughts
from melting

no better time than now
to lean
this way
