Walking Through Chasms


Take this hand -

(age-stained
love painted
time-tainted)

Many times it has held
(smoothed,
soothed
delude-
ed)
Some(thing) one else.

It has touched
(felt manipulated
held
bled
fed
caressed)

It is wrinkled,
Brown now, worn down,
(it has been intimate
with infinite
things)

This hand is marked
With a thousand moments -
(scars -
star-maps of time,
age-creepers,
marking a life-span) .

Take this map -
And walk beside me through its
Chasms.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
