Courting Another Quilt


Blanket your senses
With the warmest duvet of silence
Let eyes court
The canvas beyond sight
Let ears tune in
To the void of outer space
Beyond which the Loving Beast
Sleeps while awake
Wakes while asleep

I turn my gaze beneath
See the softest scoop
Of a bed
Of a Hand too strong
For amnesia, alzheimer’s, abandonment
For mortal hands spoon that weak,
Not This!
And I hang in bliss,
As the world beneath my horizon
Turns and turns on gyrating wheels
Breathing fire,
I float

Mystical, royal, sublime
Garden of Babylon I
Hang serene, secure, from the hook
Of The King’s timeless Hand
