One by one each unfastened itself. To sit is to be present when the roll is called. I knew that. I wore my hat of straw, fringed like fingers sifting a breeze. My hat collecting a thousand thoughts… …I had no map and few lessons yet to guide me.
I was a study of questions. O Grandmother, I was small, sitting in the midst of wildness, a child thrilling at the boss of thunder.
A rustle of leaves, moss tipping at me- I was small, I was hunger, I was thirst- wings flitting in a brush pile. O Grandmother, I was small, kneeling in the midst of wonder, quaking and singing at the edge of need. Anagram of Seeking by Susan Laughter Meyers Sit, unplanted, with your back to a tree, or sink to your knees. If sorrow drowns the hour, let yourself keen , each hurt recalled, the heart a siege of old wounds.
If startled by joy, let yourself sing.
Light dims, the air cools your skin. This density of leaves and skein of tenuous moss, yours. Child, singe the night, boldly. O lost see, catch fire and seek. Giving Birth by Marcus Amaker do you remember when the earth was just a baby, settling in its skin, safe in the arms of mother nature with fire breathing from within. Furnace by Ed Madden fragment Because the world is burning, he buttons heaven across his chest and sits in a furnace of green leaves. The ground blazes, each leaf a tongue, each blade a flame.
The trees glow like coals about to break to cinders, the sky a splatter of fire seen through dark leaves, drifting smoke of moss-no, not moss- this grey tinsel the dead toss in trees that lean above their small, private homes. No, not moss, but a bloom of ghostly jellies, a school of squid, tendrils drifting in the wet heat-the forest a sea seething, the trees simmer, glow like thick limbs of coral… Open Spaces by Kwame Dawes fragment 2.
Seeking: Poetry and Prose Inspired by the Art of Jonathan Green (Palmetto Poetry Series)
There is always someone in the shadows ahead, slipping in and out of light. The artist can lose his way in these groves of ancient trees, circling back, trying to fight the urge to return to the clearing. He looks for light, the way rays vault through the language of leaves and branche; and soon there is only the dull blue of peace where the shadow lurches into a dance of welcome. The artist paints the green prayer; lost in the consuming and unsettling bliss of recognition, the canvas growing into a path-finder, the sun falling.
