saturday shopping list - june 25th...


this little light of mine - photography art, by honeytree

"i used to imagine him
coming from the house, like merlin
strolling with important gestures
through the garden
where everything grows so thickly,
where birds sing, little snakes lie
on the boughs, thinking of nothing
but their own good lives,
where petals float upward,
their color exploding,
and trees open their moist 
pages of thunder - 
it has happened every summer for years.

but now i know more
about the great wheel of growth,
and decay, and rebirth,
and know my vision for a falsehood.
now i seed him coming form the house -
i see him on his knees,
cutting away the diseases, the superfluous,
coaxing the new,
knowing that the hour of fulfillment
is buries in years of patience -
yet willing to labor like that
on the mortal wheel.

oh, what good it does the heart
to know it isn't magic!
like the human child i am
i rush to imitate -
i watch him as he bends
among the leaves and vines
to hook some weed or other;
i think of him there
raking and trimming, stirring up
those sheets of fire
between the smothering weights of earth,
the wild and shapeless air."
