Fruit Fly

Oh to be fearless like the fruit fly, willing to die, as it leaps and drowns in a glass of wine.

Initiation in the shadow of the trees on one's knees; in a pool of water, wings flutter, dancing flame on one's head, to our old self dead.

Subtle and Soft

Subtle and Soft
Soothing waves caress
A motion -
Emotion -
I am blessed

Speak to me
A thousand words
A thousand valkyries
Save me from the field
I will yield

Come bear me up
Take to flight
Take me to your halls of light

Shield bearing arms of silk
Softly alight across the field
Ever so near - Yet
Cannot grasp.
