Live Again

I. “Climb The Path with Gladness”*    
The veil hoisted midway up the mountain    
nebulous images reflecting my voyage    
into the scenery beyond my window    
Bygone shapes presently existing within    
an interdimensional portal expanding    
to bridge the timelessness of energy    
Fossils of consciousness channeling    
their essence: migrational light-beings    
and hues of saffron-colored dryads    
II. “The Eastern Gate”**    
The entrance is lengthy but smooth    
beneath my tires, the clammy forest    
emptying a waterlogged containment    
The last trimester of the swollen lake    
gestates with rainwater amid warmer    
than expected temperatures    
The cabin is vacant to my presence    
visions of you approaching manifest    
sodden steps compressing grass    
III. Wen' de ya ho***    
For an instant I am disoriented    
stillness abducting my senses    
questions my geological bearing      
Have two weeks truly created    
such a difference in a knowing    
that recently seemed so certain    
The bolt on the door jars open    
vying uncertainty against time -    
reservation stalls with your entrance    
Your approach is sedate, wordless    
drawing hesitance from distance    
melding into my breath, you whisper    
“Welcome home, my Ghigau” –    
in the exhale we both accept    
the time-limit of the hour glass    
IV.  “Dlatot La'ahavah”****    
Materialistic surroundings vanished    
leaving only a dimensional presence    
satiated in a countenance of being    
In the tenderness of transference    
dissipating doubt to knowledge    
I could differentiate nothing    
Between the past or eternity    
On the contrary – all things    
beget a (w)ho(l)ly fervency    
Fathoms of amazing grace    
flooded a tribal will to wait –  
We t(w)oo shall live again    
* Buddhist devotional song    
** Christian hymn    
*** Cherokee Morning Song “I am of the Great Spirit” (translation)    
**** Hebrew song “Doors of Love” (translation)
