Our Wall is All Window

Poets are those

who need not be told

that the moon is

the mind’s greatest deity.

There is always light

here on Earth ~

even wrapped in night’s

black silk sheets,

I wear the mood

of ambient silver

that holds my room

in the pulse of silence

inspired by its presence.

Where did I leave

those chains I chose

for myself, chains I made

as if there were nothing

to do but set limits

on my vision,

admit impediments

to the marriage of my mind

with divine silence?
