Consolation

photo wallpaper


My thoughts, turning southward,
donkey to play a new music,
but  a twenty-year consolation
to old soil soul
in short feeble breath,
leaning to purple lavender candle
to clean the mystical hollow passageway,
open to pestilence or blessings…

  8. There's a subtle art in being open either to pestilence or blessings. Some days I'm open to one, some days the other, although I fear the pestilence usually outweighs the blessings.
