Spice of life

The ancient eavesdropper

A landslide of grey sky —
canopies buried under
the rubble of rock doves —
breathing in the heavy air.

My mind wanders
thru treetops —
gamboling on clouds
& leapfrogging birds —
dreaming of a weightless
world that defies logic.

Words migrate
between hemispheres
like snow verbs.

Pieces of me — 
held together
by compression —
my DNA aches.

Closing my eyes
I dig deep inside
& uproot my heart.

The stark contrast
of crows in the snow
I notice my shadow.

On the cold cement
lies a moth in rigor mortis
closer to the light.

Tree branches
flowing like veins
into the heart
of the sun.

Canopies
arched like
protractors —
measuring
the angle
of light.

Clouds slide
across the sky —
floating like
calving icebergs —
tips of my
imagination.

At the back
of my mind —
reaching to find —
the spice of life.
