Night "As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being." Carl Jung


I want to prowl the night like an energetic ghost -
Want to plumb the facts out of the past
to hug the night like
Night hugs the desert
As if it could last -
When the day holds sway
I want to know
I did not waste
in the hours before

I'll be
the Night blooming jasmine
I'll be
the Cactus at dawn

In the heat I'll be
Sand or sweat
salt or sunburn
not gone.not lost.
not diminished
day does not take a history
light does not sour me, nor erase
energy the night
insists upon lending me.

by the way, everything i said about hpphoto home practically was BS...they'd changed their ways a lot...but you can still have a free online photo album, more than one in fact, and if you wish to share it you send an email to anyone you wish to share it with. never mind "barbsaid" - barbsaid shit she didn't know was wrong...:l

I stand on the sand, and I'm rocking grief to sleep in my arms.
