Hugh Cobb Poems
glacial heart beats slowly, coolly
caring less about others' needs
than preserving spirit's isolation;
& age could know youth's fire again
or age could Old Time's hands turn back
T'would then be youth with time to spend
Paint with words a portrait of my heart
when I think of you -
Not the pulsing muscle
stolen bride prepares her return to light.
unseasonal, almost balmy
I step into the small Japanese Garden
in the center of three buildings:
Dancing With The Tao
or mountain brook
murmurs over stones,
a mystery of tranquility
explained only in
its being, justified only
by its own existence.
The gestalt, the All-That-Is
