Battle Meditation

there is a sun,

a supernova heart

pulsing with all

its eternity above

infinitesimal mornings;

days that never end.


watching it peel

back the exclusionist

fogs, the silent

steams tracing

the lips of the

lake with is mist

fingers, a touch

without the heaviness

of love.


a full cloud of it

set against the bays —

standing staid and

obstinate, pretends

it will continue its

ready matrix;


for all, its solidity.


it cannot

stop the sun from rising,

from changing its cloudy

nature to the simpler,

iconic invisibility of day.


there is a sun, rising

to the challenge of a


clear blue sky; the

goosey gargling in

the distance, and the

last of the sweet

to-whits ,


making their

angular way

to the beginning of

itall; to the promise of



before my eyes, the

brilliant crystal glitter

of frost encases wood;

another player, this time

glass pretending to be



a fish reaches

for the receding

mist and, not to be

outdone, the water

never rests.


there is a sun,

a supernova sigh

lighting my day,

warming my hands

and my brow,

inspiring this litany,

this necessary tedium

of writing it out —


just in case


someone asks me, one

day, what the sun

was like in the morning,

what the mists did

and what Autumn

sounded like,
