  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
