Timeless

Some things are beyond words ~
Some things can be painted
only in images ~
Traveling under the Earth
for thousands of years,
my eyes have seen it all.
First, darkness ~
thick as the blood of beasts…
Oozing past and through
the sands of Sahara.
To quench, it fails.
It calls but I have deaf ears.
Seeping through
the canopy of trees,
light coyly appears next ~
On the ground I lay below,
merging fingers with
fallen leaves.
I welcome its warmth
with a smile.
Then sleep ~
tickling and teasing…
dizzying my heart.
It plays with my memories,
mixing them and molding
into endless possibilities…
So many years past ~
So many more to come ~
I continue to walk.
