” spent in the heavens ” – everyday poetry 169

i wrote this poem on the train – during 2 trips – i am sure that it did not take long – there is a date in the middle – as how it was written in my journal… but – i did

like the dead oak leaf

laying on the ground

🍁

so to my body decaying
  waiting to be found
🍁
🍁
trying to say a million things
without making a sound
🍁
 🍁
like the leaves that wither
entrenched into the ground,
 🍁
🍁
The deposed circumference
like the wearing of a crown
 🍁
🍁
🍁
The eternal prose of erosion
flirting with the worms
tunneling to the abyss
 🍁
The happy dance that is this
{09:22:31 on 11/19/14}                              🍁
brokenness emulsified,
🍁
the liquid of being will soon become been
and the evaporation of the now and then
to be spent in the heavens
 🍁
🍁
The eternal  wrap
gifted to the souls that received
and yet to receive
 🍁
like the leaves on a newborn tree
is the essence of you & me
before the descent

before the descent –
