Inside Out

Posted: April 28, 2015 in Uncategorized


inside me where fear reigns supreme

the forces of nature lie dormant and repressed.


A lifetime

of watchful care and well timed response

has left me adept but crippled agile yet stiff

clouded like an unpolished gem

buried under sediment and personal history.



urges long suppressed bulge like Mount St. Helens

the day before the day after.


What erupts

is genuine and primal

it burns the practiced arts to ash –

The Book of Acts writ large now gone to smoke and shadow

and the dry whispered echo of turning pages burning.


From shouted gaping fissures

cones of life emerge.

What was inside spews out.


Oh, to erupt in fiery wonder

become just another force of nature!
