Unburying Life

Unburying Life

 

I know I lead a life apart

 

I’m not sure what it’s for

Being alive or being apart

 

The best thing I seem to

Do for now is eke out words

On paper in a wide electric

Way

 

Like a fisher near new water

I cast about the promise of

Dawn blue and deep green

 

Is my better season spent

Right here

 

Because I write for you

 

C L Couch

Almost Heaven

Almost Heaven

(phrase from artist John Denver)

 

Kanawha, Nicholas,

Greenbrier counties

 

Earth gives way

To water and to fire

In the anger of the

Skies

 

Prometheus surrenders

To the whim of

Dionysus,

 

Touched with the

Power of Poseidon

And sport-attitude

Of Zeus

 

We reach over gods

Toward better

Intercession,

 

Praying for the

Tendril touch that

Holds the earth

And sky

 

And all the heavens

 

Because on land and

Other West Virginia

Lives, an ocean’s

Upheaval falls

 

Drowning, splitting

The ground on

Which we alive yet

Strive to stand
