Home And Back Again
It is hard to know exactly
in what secret woods you dwell
as the mighty trees spiral
in their woody dreams
and you as well do join them
dreams within dreams of twinning ivy
write their poems in the spaces of the forest.
& ferns prophesy lush kisses--
Your long flowing hair rustles
in the sacred spaces of the trees...

As your strange eyes see beyond
the brambles of all things
commingling with frozen yesterdays
and liquid tomorrows--
through the veils of mysteries
you do walk in sweetness
have you found your lover
in the prayer of leaves--
can you see the little house of twigs
in the depths of the forest
gleaming with fireflies and transparent mists--
hugging the swaying curtain of your desire
hearth glows with luminous possibilities
where is your love
does he quietly slumbers within
but yet he is not known
by the mornings kiss
it is only a few steps
away from the door
of a new day.

A small fox he at this moment is
dreaming by the fire
dreaming in the glowing leaves
of your love in midnight labors he does
stalk across the slumbering woods
searching for you even through
he cannot remember you
but he knows somewhere his treasure be ...
for in the midnight hour
of his transformation
he has no human knowledge or body
only the cleverness of his fox-like form
to find home and back again
through the wickets of moonlight
he does search
to find the mystic passages and depths of your love--
that weave your hidden name
in his dream quests
it traces him with a burning vagueness
and shows your radiant face
in the curious fathoms of his hopes
the moonbeams of your body
call to him in the distance--
through the brambles and the hidden places
he does search
but he knows that he must find you
when he awakes
he will forget his true self and bury his journeys
deep in the grave of the day
and with his human arms embrace you
in all his broken charms
and kiss the mystery of your beloved lips
with his new transformed humanness
and you will hold him awakened human...
Closer than the dreams of trees
Home and back again.....

Another jewel here. Did you read the story of taming the fox, from "Little Prince" by Antoine de Sain Exupery?
