Modrn Love Xxix (Zen Swimming Without Water) - Poem by Liberatore Suffoletta

Aquarius empties vases on all the greens of sunderland
a thousand mouths show the river's green tongue
swallowing the cool rain's kisses
black rocks dance as they bathe on the eastern shore
birds open their black, red, blue umbrellas
a young eagle circles the still trees
skunks somersault and make love under a maple
a golden retreiver leaps for eternity
from the thumb of a laughing black rock
finds it floating upstream
and returns it over and over
hundreds of ancestral souls
float by in a ballet
with no depth, and endless forms
of pollen stillness
on the smiling face of the green river
some are slithers of silence
some are clouds
listening to tacit voices
cry of love
compassion in the black rocks
creates tears to wash its face
fireflies lick the wet leaves of stars
in anticipation of tonights rehearsal
the waterfall rejoices in consumation
with the warmer water of the river
dew must await another day
sunshine took a vacation
dark clouds rule today
they don't mean to hurt
the have to cry
they are insecure
and unsure about love
Evening star and waxing moon
have wanted to taste, to feel
summer rain for an eternity
and a sabbath
they salute the dark clouds
and bow low as they depart
Wet morning irises,
stand up,
raise arms
reach for dark clouds
close eyes
chanting
let it rain, let it rain
love rain down on me
the dark clouds
the green river
the silver waterfall
the black rock
the blue heron
the mauve eagle
stand still
holding their good breath
in the arms of morning
