Spirit Song

It is beyond closed eyes I see
an alien to me, a fellow consciousness
who trembles in his heart, 
a partner of my soul I never knew,
whose constancy is certain 
as that looming space that throbs
before me and demanding 
that the song be heard, 
impossible the song, 
the song inviolate, 
and there upon a waiting breath.

Words make court
around the beauty I may not contain.
The goal is given, not defined,
intoned, and thrown upon the board.
I take
I break
I share the body and the blood,
and there within the courtyard
is the prize millenia have dreamed to touch.

There...
within my outstretched hands
this very moment and
I shall not pass it by.
               ~
