This Pale Cavern



Smoke darkened roofs
This old skull
Forum for my soul

An empty lantern
In darkness
Rattling

The old tree
The family
Uprooted

By the creek
On the stones
Words overturned

A Saint's preocupation
Rippled rhymes
Sounding

Then the stumbling
Discovery of the bone
And laughter

Rings around the bone
Carved by human hand
Images of god

The whispers in the web
Singing of silver fish
These deep dreams
