Passage Into Silence Poem

Passage Into Silence Poem!

The essence of darkness is light,
as oil is the essence of this light.
You are the origin of all jasmine, narcissi,
and irises to come.
You are sunlight moving
through the houses, David’s hand
molding smooth chainmail,
September moon
over the unharvested crop. You set
the grain in the husk.
A rose torn open, my head
not worrying about debt, you,
soul and body
mortared together in bed,
you saying,
you are, you are,
then stopping to twist the strings
to sweeten the voice.
When I give this body
to the ground, you will find
another way.
These words are an alternate
existence. Hear the passage into
silence and be that.
