Sunset - Poem by Debi Cimo

It is late now,
the red sea of sunset gloves the white aspen–
a figure of hovering grandeur.

We wanted to linger,
to absorb each other’s languages–
to feel, to be felt and understood.

We–ordinary we–stepped in opaque silence
and emerged transparent and breathless.
Each an elemental compass.

At the time there were rituals of continuity
and singlemindedness dividing us into
ourselves and each other.

At the time we were scalded, discovering
our sensations-disappearing between sweetness
and the result of beginning again.

Still, it is late now,
the red sea of sunset gloves the white aspen–
the figure of hovering grandeur. (ancient and kind)

I can count on this. And you.
Because we have creased our future repetitions
and believed in the openendedness of everything.

    Well, this just flows very nicely. Some of the imagery is quite interesting - 'elemental compass.' Nice. I confess I don't understand all of it, but it has a very nice sensibility. (Report) Reply
