enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

first, a necessary wound
pain's intimate clarity
finds its mark
like hell
no where to hide
imagine instead 
rushing & crunching 
through pile after pile of fallen leaves
soft amber swirling

then, one long, soaring moment
pours strange benevolence into a necessary scar
imagine its sweet resilience
cradling every treachery 
released into soft amber


  1. I think I like Dilaudid the best for hiding before take off to the floating release.

  2. I've read this a number of times now trying to put my (cyber) finger on what it is - I keep coming back to escaping the hunt. I like the way it dashes from under the leaves to fly away.

  3. WM-- can't argue with that logic...there 's something about that smoothing feeling.... when pain is the issue, i think that "bearing it" as a mark of honour is just not all that honourable.
    Pisces-- i love those words.... exactly what i was hoping to convey. escaping the hunt is also quite appropro... how'd ya know??

  4. "pours strange benevolence into a necessary scar" i wrote on a similar topic today but my whole thought was summed up better by this one line of yours and i fear i wasted a whole blog page
