rising & fading
still, what i want in my life
is to be willing
to be dazzled–
to cast aside the weight of facts
and maybe even to float a little
above this difficult world.
i want to believe i am looking
into the white fire of a great mystery.
i want to believe that the imperfections are
that the light is everything–that it is more than the sum
of each flawed blossom rising and fading. and
++in the sand with my girl briana cerezo, who reminds me to play
and who inspires me to leave the shore every once and awhile.
