Vision

Vision

what is my vision?

first ask the stones

how?

crush and mix stone into paint
build a dry stone wall

step into a shallow running stream
and feel the surprising shapes of pebbles
on your soul

throw your voice into a place
and hear its echo
as you observe vanishing point
and your presence expands
diffused
here

fall with the water wearing away
like letters scribbled on the skin
where blood flows deep

a language before knowing
beyond speaking
beneath life

let stone move
you

*

(A Human Transcription)

for life long and moving as the forming of stone

for children’s veins coursing with living stories
and bones riddled with breath of ancient spaces

forged

forgiven

atoned

at one
