sanctuary

sanctuary

note to self

this is where
I go to get quiet—
my inner sanctuary
sink deep and listen
if I am still, I can find
the cathedral of words
part prayer part supplication
part statement of intent
words pouring
from the wordless
to write myself awake

there’s nothing to do
yet still I’m compelled—to convey
what cannot be written or spoken
or painted or sung or sculpted
although it can be revealed
the ineffable—
transparent
luminous
empty
open

*thank you to Ayaz Angus Landman for the phrase “cathedral of words”

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—they may never turn into anything more or they might flower.
