House Of The Watchers
House of the watchers
As the tutelage of ancient days foretells
Where is the house of the watchers?
Where is it hidden
in the folds of the sky
in the crannies of silent stone.
how you peer mysterious watchers
into the darkening corners of the world
Waiting for the final seasons
to shape and blow their dark storms...
Marking with words
that will not be worked on our tongues
the yoked oxen
of our imagination
has been taxed and over burdened
our language limits us
as the shadow chasers howl

In what mysterious forest do
you wait for human kingdoms
to fail in the currents of time.
civilizations flutter into
obscurity in delineated boundaries
and still your curiosity gleams
on the marble steps of a waning
breathtaking moon--
amongst a folding afternoon
of dying stars and run away comets
Where is your house
that i might see it
for the old ones wait in the caves
of the mountains
For you leave your dark
feathers in the midst of my dreams
for i know that you wait
and i know that you watch..
