Knots Of My Hair
My fingers are clumsy candles
that glow with a eerie light.
How my hand
strokes the mystery of my chin.
i am puzzled
as seasons flash like lighting
and my eyes are waterfalls of thoughts.

The dryness of my throat knows no words
nether beginning or ending
with a suggestion of a meaning.
i drink deep from the goblet of sound
enveloped in the gentle flow
of a song

My hair like to be unknown
to be a hedge of simple mystery
in which the softness
of my ear lobes can hide in tranquility
longs to curl in the corners of insignificance
how my smile frees itself of chains
the ample corners of my lips..
my dimples have no knowledge
what i can obtain
so i beam in the contentment of incompleteness
as spirit swims in my eyes
any smoothness of purpose
is not foreseen
For all is strange and beautiful
like a two headed fish
that cannot find its tail....

While a child looks
for a temple where a single
flower of wisdom
unburdens its petals
in the windows of prayer..
for i only trace the shadow of knowledge
the joy of comparison the otherness
of invisible buttons of insight
my virtue a curious sea shell
hidden in the tempest of ages
as angels are trapped in the knots of my hair
for my strands are just the hay
of foolishness....
