Transformed

on the passing of an animal companion

 

Free to wander the many realms,

transformed by the endless sea

 

I have not died but merely

made

myself again, reborn.

 

Find me in the eternal waters,

my shape formed in the stars.

 

I traverse the wondrous wood of all imagining.

Momentum

They were charged with hot

electrical momentum –

two fires that raged in the night

one after another they fell

in passion and desire

swept with madness across each other’s lives

 

he was like the ram,

powerful and alive

and she loved like a lion in the dark

howling for each other

breath upon breath,

their bodies swayed in a newfound trance

 

as they loved

their oceans burst together

rivers surged and forests burned with need,

will against will,

heart becoming one –

they fought their battles with unconditional love

 

wherever they went

death followed their steps,

the old ways died and their old lives

fell

cities crashed

one by one on the horizon,

as the transformers reshaped the world in their dance

 

they bore one other

along the bones and broken dreams,

their bodies transfixed with mighty wonder –

 

there came the wings

borne across each other’s backs –

wings that promised of another chance.
