Now Is The Time Of Poetry

a space
rejuvenize(d) cave
place your cloth with mine – neatly folded on top or within the sepulcher
roll open the stone door – this is a morning for poetry
warm sun blazing – Salton sea mani-pedi-cure
drop a wet micro burst
30 seconds worth to wash us both
let Easter begin
i want to walk along the garden
let us see what wasn’t seen a few nights before

o Canada hear me now
i am standing at the edge of your own waters
personal moments for each individual

o Everywhere hear me now
i am standing in your own image
structured by Man and Father himself

a space
an entire world
a heaven
this warmth for all eternity
a morning prayer
ready to hear your poetry
re-emerging in this ocean of whales
psalms for songs and all we united
let Easter begin
i want to walk along beside you
