The Mother's Loom

Dearest, why cry in vain to the black night 
fight its gentle intent to hold and rest. 
Why fear the loss of light thus malcontent? 
When ego is so false upon the loom. 

Dearest, what makes you think elation found
from harsh light will so frame your hearts delight?
Reality thus formed will not slay fright.
When ego goes so false upon the loom.

Dearest, husks of the Universal eye
soft grays will velveteen the fading light.
Walk on courageous in the Mother's night,
accept the silken comfort of the blur. 

All that is soft and gentle comes from Her.
Dearest Heart, loose yourself upon the loom.

*Dedicated to my friend Robin Gass 
and all those who fear dispersal in the dark.

(I withdrew my contest poem for further work when the moon is full....) jamesy (oh my! I'm on to an idea!)
