Eye on the Sparrow


Burrowed and fetally curled

Cozily nestled into the lower left ventricle

Lulled and comforted by sinus rhythm lullabies

Insecure

Afraid

Sullenly cowering and wearied



Decades of fermented desires spark dormant embers

Nauseated by lapsed imprudence

Suffocated by echoes of rue

Stymied by inextricable fear

Shrouded with an undefined cloak of invisibility



Friends and foe slither into the coup

Inhaling the promise

Digesting

Infecting

Subduing

Consuming

Darkening crystalline solemn surety into lifeless onyx



Want

Need

Request

Creed

My foundational essence …. purity

Choice

Pride

Sowing of inept seeds

This AB negative blood that for you I unhesitatingly bleed



Tick…

The hand advances as I bow before the altar

Sanguine I compress decades of desire between the ridges of sweaty palms

Tongue tied and stricken with infallibility

Cross legged in the eye of the hurricane

Reposed in timelessness awaiting the succulence of calm



Internal compass points True North

Destiny known and rhythmically resonating within the marrow

Hope never lost amongst disorder

Remembering when Mama said “Keep your eye on the sparrow.”


As the sun shines it’s last light

Lain close

Insulated beneath a Dannert Down comforter

Skin to skin

Protecting each other from the external

It’s you and me…

Together

Forever
