Randy Resh

(April,1967 / Toronto, Canada)

Hourglass


Of sinew sear shearing
savaging sandstorm
spanning scorched crossings
furious miserous maelstrom

rapacious ravenous ruinous regrettable
insanity's calamity vast vacuous vanity

Through the unforgiving
impenetrable forgettables
tidal dune cresting
passing mounds tolling

Beyond the shifting
silicone scour siftings

our tesseract hourglass mask
...cracks...

Moonless meridian
for star speckled firmament

constellate letters pulse meter
mouths permanence

This animate moment
pronouncing remembrance

all that you might recall
sift remnants of semblance

This day next year
next life pellucid plain

not one shining grain
the least would have waned

worlds unimagined
save only but gained

Forsaking material terrestrial temporal
curs'd corruptible corporeal vehicle

From aching aeons' paean innumerable
I love you so

unequi-vocal

I letter you stellar
supernova torrential

shock-wave deluge
inundate transcendental

empty frame fountain
turn figure-eight funnel

unfathomed inconceivable

as before
immemorial

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
