Image for the poem Mirage


I tried to hold  
the misty breath of wind
When I sang to her  
she offered me a pantomime  
Her lovely notes I played upon my reed
but her melody I could not hold  
and like a bow of light she disappeared  
Nothing can we call our own  
since the rupture of the cord
and loss of blood  
that tossed me as a stone into this world  
of clouds and sand that swiftly pass
running through our fisted hands
Nature beckons and allures
and when we comfort in her shade
we may lose sight  
the answers that we seek are not with her
Turn the leaves and read the secret words  
that lead us to the Waters of our soul
There the fruit of Knowledge will be found
moving past the language of our minds  
returning us to what we left behind  
All else here is simply a mirage
