  Poetry and Fine Art 

Being Aware 

heavy accents in my sanctuary

restoring my outer broken skin

bold fragments of my birth-seed


a prick of light in a darkened alcove

seeps the forgotten on a newborn page

I squint to mirrored image and sound


centuries of foot-shuffled paths

diminish into proper importance

with infant milk and fertile dreams


repeated thoughts become an oath

a seed-point beginning of wonderment

containing everything yet unknown
