Image for the poem the door

the door

 
 
the moon was pregnant with wisdom
& it spoke to me
whispered secrets in my ear
 
it gave birth to words
great ones  
for those with a mind to hear
 
the red dog
who makes people tremble
is at the door
 
the bugle boy
has ushered in a dreadful age
 
nigh the horses are riding
it is terrible and great times we are in
 
I saw a child before me
he traveled a treacherous journey
spoke a language
not known to the human race
with a voice understood
not heard
uttered it's finished
 
I closed my eyes
& reopened them  
witnessed him transform
into a wise old man
 
he opened a door before me
said "go in"
I crossed the threshold  
felt the power of the place
& awoke
