Shaping us shaped by us

Shaping us shaped by us
Spirit visits as if
—Our thinking: from stored repeated thoughts
To working at thinking
To reverie
To living notions on the wing out of reach
—Weights: from heaviest conscience
To bouncing step
—Colors: from sharpness of red
To fingers outstretched in dark diaphanous swirling violet
—Winds: from fiercest storms
To light whisper of a lover on my cheek
Spirit we have never known you yet!

Not so mysterious

Maybe not so mysterious
matter—brain
producing immaterial—thought
for feet produce action—running
is thinking less particle more wave?

The tracks we make

The tracks we make upon our times
are faint, faint
Did our parents take us to Washington
in 1962 or 1963 or 1964?
There are no longer any records
and who can open those computer files
from a decade ago?

Might those flaws be energy?

Flawed we say we humans are
Might those flaws be energy
Wildness chaos our world needs
To grow to invent to love
even as it affronts order & control?
