Naked Time

watching clock time
hands on face
numbers roll

inhale
exhale
raggedly

visceral slowing
watching
candle flame lit
dispelling
a vampire in the ether

inhale
exhale
smoother now

deeper,
belly pushes hands
worries disintegrate
with the vampire’s
bad intentions
into naked time…

  1. “dispelling a vampire into the ether’ A bit of genius there, poet… also the notion of time as naked….but for the vampire’s bad intentions…another stroke of brilliance…Why didn’t I write that? I think this write is one of my favorites of yours…:)) xoxo

  2. This is great. It seems to me you write about waiting and meditating to settle the anxiously felt.
    I love the connection with time / clock, hands / face the then leads to candle / flame, visceral / belly.

    A wonderful moment of worry turned to peace. So it seems to my way of reading πŸ™‚
