Pond Song 4.48


Absolute absolving power is agapeic as power that gives the power to give. G&B 254



pond bottomless snow clouds__rain thickens white

and sticks on my face__shadowless absolving light


pale gyrations of silent gulls__widen as the winds build

over the slack gun-metal pond__empty and light-filled


at last I live by the river__the power I once had I’ve lost

bricks laid for the worst weather__after this tea and toast

  1. This is a lovely meditation on tensions of consciousness, humanity, nature, the divine Other, coming to a crescendo in the wonderful Horatian self-deconstructing aha moment!
