Improvisation 10 28 2012


Astonished -by gifts of love
Paralyzed -empty quiet rest
Expectant -edging
For a handful
Drowning in all the moments
Time runs beginning with
Moment to moment ending with
Stopwatch mental precision
Frozen in absolute conscience
Cascading -too many
Entangled in too much money
Expended moral decay
Holy Spirit set back drop
Spilt upon acts
Portrayed upstage
Front silences
Backlight tannin flesh tight
Around strong skin enclosed

(Lee B. Mack, Astonished, Page 2)

Tantalizingly tempting
Trancelike foregoing foreplay
Though dressed jazz opera
Primping every sinew that tugs
On volition -following on
Erecting strings of cabling
From spillways run to bridge
The surge of
Blood red waters of driven
Love's profuseness driven
To ballet
Willingly limber for flight
Astonished that love is hard
Too hard to hold onto
Flees to the rim
Of height above rain
And wind uplifted to swirls
Into moons
Naturally appearing mires
Forming novel literatures
Of familiar faces
The chosen saved by the
Fulfillment of time at
Your embrace.
