Stones of Gaia

The stones take hold,


pounding through the bones,

echoing from vague cathedrals

of remembered futures and real fantasies

to coasts w/castles that stand stoic,


Memory plays tricks and

treats the deja vu


keeping that familiar


tantalizing, tingling, dancing

back into the mist.

And those stones,

standing on a hill,

their glow surreal,

charged w/Gaia’s blood,

Her magic.

Static through every moon’s face,

Laced w/ill-defined fairy tales.

Tragic that so few

can breath Her sweet scent

and have the cloying fragrance

fill every pore to the brim

until the burning light

is coursing through

grey-matter-jelly, legs, arms,

stripping the heart to its meaty core,

birthing ideas as children

but bearing our most tender

child,                                                                Hope.
