A Calm Beyond Midnight

Away from the day
(away from the sun)
sitting in a cabin
surrounded by a forest
I find myself
once again
listening to
meditative waves
of silence
and stillness
seeping into my consciousness

in a calm
far beyond
the reach of midnight

where the full moon’s light
softly falls upon the dark-blue night
radiates into anyone who believes.

    And the iguanas dance in the desert/a thousand miles away from this place/and this face: stoned immaculate.

    "Let us remember . . . that in the end we go to poetry for one reason, so that we might more fully inhabit our lives and the world in which we live them, and that if we more fully inhabit these things, we might be less apt to destroy both." Christian Wiman, Editor of "POETRY" "Hang on to your hopes my friend; That's an easy thing to say, but if your hopes should pass away, simply pretend that you can build them again." ~ Paul Simon
