mother (we are spirits)

For S*

in

my


  dream

i
sang

soft melodies, blasting arpeggios,
commanding silences,
soulful human tones

and
there
sat you

clapping your hands to the beat
turning light into heat
my words into feet


the joy of your smile
intoxicated my songs,
strung me along
bounced like tassles
free to dance
& play

i felt happy
every soothing essence coalesced like
a planet spinning under the stars
graceful giant wisps of brilliance
a glimpse of the great unknown


wandering
wandering...

and
there i found you again, in
a pocket
sleeping,
a warm memory,
a familiar shape,

a stone i wear around my neck
