Timeless

by Joe Davis (copyright 1999 Joe Davis)

timeless

the Earth is weeping for the moon

unfulfilled

her greatest sadness turns

untouched

her many waters running red

pouring out the river Nile

she fills her cups and bowls

by the passage

of some other gravity

and pulls new fruit from within the vine

as she sheds her tears

pools well up to kiss the lip of land

again



while I wait

I can only press my heart to make the wine
