The Infinite Rebirth
My old self is gone.
It is a new day with its own direction.
How strange, how articular,
I come to this unfolding place
As I find a way
over, around, under and through
the tasks, quartered by others,
but by Thee made whole.
And when the mohair blanket of darkness
covers this day, I will rest
in the bed that you have made for me,
fall into a dreamless sleep
where the drapes of my eyelids
hide the memories of my mind,
without a care for
what tomorrow will bring.

stare at my face with riveted
attention and curiosity
Not like the slate eyes
that pass me in the hallways
of buildings where appointments are kept
or like the ebony eyes
of a hungry lover, a parched tongue
that seeks water.
Your eyes have none of that.
Your eyes look directly at me,
like a dolphin, you smile and cry.
People say that you are trapped alive
without language, but right now
your mahogany eyes, in this
point of seconds, tell me everything
I ever yearned to hear.
