A Rock, A River, A Tree
Hosts to species long since departed,
Mark the mastodon.
The dinosaur, who left dry tokens
All those men were there inside,
when she came in totally naked.
They had been drinking: they began to spit.
Newly come from the river, she knew nothing.
The sun has burst the sky
Because I love you
And the river its banks.
I come from haunts of coot and hern,
I make a sudden sally
And sparkle out among the fern,
To bicker down a valley.
At six o'clock we were waiting for coffee,
waiting for coffee and the charitable crumb
that was going to be served from a certain balcony
- like kings of old, or like a miracle.
Some time when the river is ice ask me
mistakes I have made. Ask me whether
what I have done is my life. Others
have come in their slow way into
Traveling through the dark I found a deer
dead on the edge of the Wilson River road.
It is usually best to roll them into the canyon:
that road is narrow; to swerve might make more dead.
Then Almitra spoke, saying, 'We would ask now of Death.'
And he said:
There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around
That the colt from old Regret had got away,
And had joined the wild bush horses - he was worth a thousand pound,
So all the cracks had gathered to the fray.
if there is a river
more beautiful than this
bright as the blood
red edge of the moon if
At gauzy dusk, thin haze like cigarette smoke
ribbons past Chrysler Building's silver fins
tapering delicately needletopped, Empire State's
taller antenna filmed milky lit amid blocks
Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
What was he doing, the great god Pan,
Down in the reeds by the river?
Spreading ruin and scattering ban,
Splashing and paddling with hoofs of a goat,
The deep parts of my life pour onward,
as if the river shores were opening out.
It seems that things are more like me now,
That I can see farther into paintings.
born from a spring
from mother earth's womb
an adventurous child hood and teen
Your hair is lost in the forest,
your feet touching mine.
Asleep you are bigger than the night,
but your dream fits within this room.
I said to the wanting-creature inside me:
What is this river you want to cross?
There are no travelers on the river-road, and no road.
Do you see anyone moving about on that bank, or nesting?
Brodie rained for; 9 months,1 week, and 1 day..and made a River
water-wisdom in river of impossibility and multi-universal truths of socratic knowthyself -cup
Self-realization of no-self-no-ego river of mental formations.
the river the river whispers memory my life bleed waters
the river the river flows extravagant quiet birth born dreams
the river the river drowns lifeful measures time scent hunts
river flows river flows witnesses myriad life cycle dramas
river flows river flows whispers resolute relentless run reasons
river flows river flows follows fragrant left wind whispers
can a river be defined by banks in contrast flow change
can a river be defined by spring stream distant shadows
can a river be defined by width of banks flood drought shift
