March Madness Top Ten: Voices/Aurora Phoenix

infused of the cosmos

she is their voices

 

tenacious and talon-tongued

she is the whistling warning

under the hawk’s taxi

down the runway

winging aloft fervently

 

sage and perspicacious

she is the measured note

owl’s hoot of knowledge

dropping stoned oceans

coursing wise and steadily

 

throaty and ardent

she is the tentacled heart-beat

pull of salmon sunrise

poach of breath and agony

lights ephemerality

 

unobtrusive and undeniable

she is the creeping whisper

muted march of myrtle

rhythmic pound of tides

circling inexorably

 

hard-shelled and vanished

she is the forested sigh

slide of ancient snail

solipsistic journey

far beyond infinity

 

she paints the sky

with their voices lost

splicing self with dignity

inhaling smoke and mirrors

of madness and reality

I spent over 2 decades as a clinical psychologist, as well as mother and partner. My world was decimated when I was suddenly incarcerated 2 and a half years ago. My writing was born in that caged existence – not a choice but a soul-saving necessity.  My blog is Insights from “Inside”
