We’ve Woven a Web

We’ve woven a web, you and I,
attached to the world, for no matter
how long, inscribed, though poorly, for
scant eyes, still, as bright a love aura as
has ever glowed, tightly wound around
our hearts, yet soaring miles above
Moodeung’s fog to warm cold February.
Sparks fly off a round-rock fire rarely seen
in these parts. We laugh, it feels like we
shouldn’t be here on a cold winter night,
just a few meters from trails so packed
during the day. This charge will never
leave. We’ve marked this space but must
go to where the stars shine, deer run, art springs.
Keep my heart in your brain, words in your hair.
Matched lifelong yearning bursts in my hand,
fluorescent. Quick, pack what you need, let’s
flee! live life in the positive zone, expand
what we enjoy together, bound by the luck
that brought us this far. Where to next?

  1. And here I find your post that you wrote on my blog! interesting. I am looking forward to reading your blog but I am not sure where I can start from.Any idea? I think I should start reading your blog on holidays as I will have more time..Every posts seems to be related to one another! 🙂 I think I have to read your posts from starting itself to get some insights about it 🙂

    • You can get a lot of poems the easy way by looking up “weehiya” segments 1-15 and a final part. Also there is 12 and 12A. This is me reading 6-10 poems per segment, until the final book Weehiya is done. It collects poems from eight previous books. I still believe “Ode To Horace Mann” is the best one. Some geopolitical essays are also included. “The Successes and Failures of Barack Obama” might be a good start there. Be Happy and Have Fun, Doug
