Slipping On Polished Atom



Let me sift,
the hot solvent,
Of my golden spittoon
Star-dust,
Through seven filters
of element,
And mosaic of gender.
/Distill the vital essence
Of jeweled spirit,
To emerge in shadow petals
Of person hood,
on your altar;
While the dance of duality
Breaths me. . .
/Coming to know, each
Inhalation and exhalation
Is worshiping the only
comfort,
That of balance. . . .
And enlightenment,
Is enjoying. . .
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
. . .. ... . . . . . . . . . the fall.

I recently found out my grandmother used to rhyme all herletters to anyone. Go figure. I hope you all enjoy my ranting! I do like what I've seen other's post. more…
