Sometimes it simply is the stark images of nature's largess that captivate the imagination, drawing the mind toward a reflective place where words become bridges:
"One had feathers like a brood-streaked koi,
another a tail of color-coded wires.
One was a blackbird stretching orchid wings.
Another a flicker with a wounded head."
(Birds Appearing in a Dream)
In other poems, birds set the tone of the moment, a joyful awakening at sunrise:
"And you waking next but not laughing,
not at all, not even aware yet
of how loud the morning was becoming."
(Singing, 5 A.M.)
Humanity reaches into the past for instruction, civilization's lessons hard won:
"Time's portion was so small to me,
like the riffle of a current.
Water led me to her:
The way it moved with her anger,
Also her love.
One knows anything until he dies."
(Medea's Oldest Son)
The incandescent present and the haunting past are a fascinating mix, the visually stunning and provocative language of Dark Wild Realm remaining to haunt the imagination. Luan Gaines/2007.
