as I lay on the earth

The blue blue sky spread like open blanket all about
snuggling the curve of my hip against the grassy mounds
with my eyes closed and my ears open the whole world gathers closer than my own empty skin
holding me here in the soft gooey centre of everything
as the birds sing and the wind caresses me right over the edge of this mortal dream.

I wanted to tell you

so long the words sit heavy unsettled
under my heart beat
 a music
I know
And as you can see
I can hardly put two words together
and as for sentences
I never understood
why they always have to end
leaving such finality
in their wake.
