Weaving a poem

Poets take hold of one thread,
Ponder it , turn it over to question 
its strength.

They brush it against the 
azure face of the sky, dip it in the 
warmth of the sun,
teach it the language of water
and the whispers of wind…

They wrap it around the crystal 
droplets of rain falling on a 
ravenous narcissi.
Then wait with the faith of hermits
 for the breath of the night to blow 
about disoriented threads
out of the silver aura of the 
moonlight and the intermingled 
zephyr of the seasons.

Dangling them from the gold-dripping 
edges of stars, they weave them 
into a galaxy of feelings mixed 
with the wildness of life
