ATLANTIC MOORINGS (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)


glistening sheets of scrolling waters
drumming on’n’on in resounding billows
wet hummming oracles unfolding there
nourishing darkening trepidationings
reverently enthralling wondering tongues
in loud roaring echoes leaving their trace
undauntingly entangling on’n’on
here across your face

by the stark emancipationing of this moon
staring through cavern crevices hand made  
silently kneading assuaging this fear inside
wrap’n ’round the musclings of our strides
so these bronze shackled imprinting soles
aint froth aloning for the leave of wet sands  
drying scared in hubrisating emulationings
who here begging unbeknowingly awaiting 
the mutual beholding of kindred hands
emanating out of our native humane

obedient you’re feeding this tumultuous
flooding here in our wondering souls
with snarling notion-nings crashing there
attacking foreboding wallings of this hold
nourishing the epic will of all who swear’n . . .
when so quietlying on back out on into then
and now on your way forth on up here again
embracing us all in this womb with its sway
pronouncing on and on of this cosmic way
