CHANGELING

Floating…

   I am floating

Until I let the waves

                Roll me.

In the lull of ripples,

   I let the water

                Hold me.

Covering my ears, I hear

                The surreal sounds

Of the life within the deep.

 

The sounds taste so like those

                I feel when I am

                Buried by sleep.

 

Rocking, as within a lover’s arms,

                Eyes closed against

                What I might see,

Choosing instead to rely

On images just

                Beneath Reality.

Whispers unknown to my ears

                And hiding from

                The tick of time.

A breath of the Song

                Does quicken

               within my blood.

The fingers of my

                Consciousness

                       Dig deep into the

                Soil of the mists

For this is where the

                Roots of light and

                darkness are born

And tranquilly float on

                The ebb and flow

                Of thought and dreams.
