Land-bound,
he asseses and taxes
you
he fears
waters'
ways

He will not stay,
he never has....


In seasons of sorrow
and brilliance,
donít forget who you are.

Itís not you
he canít see,
touch the
many layered,
colored crystals,
hold two opposites
at one time;
solid and yet fluid
as those Colorada hot-springs,
gushing miraculous water
from stone
reds to blues.

He is not bad he is weak,
his pain splatters
your good
silk
affections

This is not your shame,
you inherited,
any more than the errors of wars

If you fight, you will not win,
for his are not
your watery ways.

i like where you'e coming from, and not all men are on a power trip, especially the ones who aren't taken seriously, especially the ones who fail and have a long hard look from the bottom of the well. Cheers, flow on thy miraculous spring! k

There is much wisdom expressed in this verse and the entire poem is most thought-provoking, Tova. Thank you. Love and peace. Regis

Tova, this is great. The last line sums it up. Profound thought to this.
