In the closet that Held one Book

In the closet

that held one book

long ago

Before the night learned to speak.

Wind came to comb the roof

Of my intentions while I slept.

Far the leaves of memory stirs

in moon stained ground.

Swaying over hedges

that i thought i had safely planted

trellises of meandering hair.

The ancient book

like a curious smooth stone

Was discovered

In an unused closed

A place where i found

my shadow dreaming--

the light of spirit on the pages--

forgotten as the old ones

walk in the wide darkness

in the world outside my imagination.

And from its depths

the gryphon come

Into the silence and lamp lost world.

Castles of strangeness

And notes of power

Gryphon take me back

With you as you battle

those who walk backward

across their promises.

Those who shall never harvest

Plant their dreams

with shears of spitefulness

And abandon the children of their kindness

Write your mysteries

In the bowls of my blinking eyes.

My eyebrows will hold

the secret script whisper of your flow

your words into me so I can grow.

For your wings

Disturb a flood of images beyond lettering

Beyond the cleverness of lips

Take me Into that world that lies

beneath the ink my dear gryphons

for my flesh longs for words

my skin the merest character

as my spirit longs

for the gentleness

an empty elegance of throat

for simple punctuation

and as skies enchanted

with mysterious rhymes

and trees give up their unnamed fruit

like i forget my scraf

wrapped in a white picket fence.

It sounds as though your muse is found in dreams...or at least, it seems...that that is where you beseach your muse. :o)

I wonder of the book, is that some type of reference similar to an akashic access? Your...library of ideas?

And the scarf...has me baffled :o)

An interesting ponder...
Very vivid imagery Andrew~
A brilliant painting.

Best wishes,
Dragon~

Andrew, this is amazing, as you have taken us to a far-away place, put us in a scene of the past, and your work from title to ending is magnificent~! Much is to be learned from such an Ethereal write~

ANDREW, HOW YOU CAPTURE MY HEART WITH YOUR POEMS.. I HAVE MISSED YOU AND YOUR WISDOM...(((Take me Into that world that lies

beneath the ink my dear gryphons

for my flesh longs for words

my skin the merest character

as my spirit longs

for the gentleness

an empty elegance of throat

for simple punctuation

and as skies enchanted

with mysterious rhymes

and trees give up their unnamed fruit
THIS IS SO LOVELY TO READ..LOVE ~ SHE
