Rosemary for Remembrance

Rosemary for Remembrance


             


water bearing down,


the pressure of panic (or peace?)


fading the flowers that fell in a noble halo.


A pawn


in the schemes of man


cast amid vile vengeance and violence.


No score of beauty:


the notes fell around your earthen diadem


“out of tune and harsh”.


 


the noble mind was yours,


Your

beauty,


But the form untouched by sisterhood


(unwritten mother where is your wisdom?)


and to what could you cling?


the earth from which the Willow trees birth?


But the mother is


The self.


 


your nakedness was that-

yours!


Rise


up!


against the “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” that were flung


through your garlands aimlessly seeking solace and


innocently defiling soft petals;


the flowers, picked by your hand,


pressed on your head and


baptized in watery grave


Holy


holey and deteriorating with the mind and body,


arise take


hold of what was always


wholly

yours.


 


My lord, my sister,


trapped as I,


the mind can transcend


(but the body tethered-not to the earth


not to the mother


an appendage of man.)


Take hold of what was always


yours,


in dream,


Yours


In sleep,


Yours


In birth, watery womb,


Yours,


        Life.
