solstice love letter to darkness

darkness
everyone lies about you, painting your face on tragedy

in the folds of the dark i find room for my dreams
i learn to swallow light, i forget to be separate
i listen to my life, i steal away home
i learn the tongue of skins
i fall in love with the neighbor child
wailing in the not-yet-morning

in the infinite dark i feel ancient again
a kiss full of hibernation
a wilderness brushing back against my fingers
a fist full of bravado
a fertile world within

darkness, in this pale time we need all of the complexity you call breath

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your uprising against the forces of darkness has got to do more than say "no." A fierce, primal yes should be at the heart of your crusade. (rob brezny, long ago)
