Poem on Change!

Change

 

Light rain falling like gasps
wanting to grasp
a chance to separate
cloud from land
and the solidity of home,
from the airy weight of gas -    

In Stratford-upon-Avon,
Shakespeare’s home,
church bells
ring, cling, sing,
even today.
Somehow he took the peal,
and looked within his characters,
created on a wheel,
taken
from the gods -

The portal opened
when my mother died.
All looked flat here, matte,
a matte painting,  
nothing mattered -
There was no r - no are -
Dimension returns now.
The brain folds like the legs of a camel,
                     and, humps -
