Master-piece

Master-piece

.

Patterns of

perfect chaos,

intricately separate and

growing, inside the fulcrum

of my personal biology.

Defined only by my relation

to another, weighted down to this rock,

this glorious giver of gravity and greenery.

 

Dreams of galaxies, streams of potent

heat, maneuvering glows,

brilliant pallets, housing

celestial communities.

Limited to a repetitive rhythm that alters

incrementally, evolves, slow, unperceptively, inside

of that,

I expand, fingers not

like the dead-hand of a yogi master, lifted

permanently drained, shriveled by an irrational

devotion to suffering, but like a startled

infant’s fingers, outstretched

mid-air in a move of instant instinct I touch

lightwaves,

merge with their flow,

twists and swirls,

cosmos canyons, rivers, dunes –

a sweet remembering of womb-like love,

a thumbprint kiss from lips I have always

always known.

You can listen to the poems my clicking below:

.

“Her (Allison Grayhurst’s) poetry appears visceral, not for the faint of heart, and moves forward with a dynamism, with a frenetic pulse. If you seek the truth, the physical blood and bones, then, by all means, open the world into which we were all born,” Anne Burke, poet, regional representative for Alberta on the League of Canadian Poets’ Council, and chair of the Feminist Caucus.

“What a treasure Allison Grayhurst is. Her gift? To unfold for us life at this intensity of feeling and revelation. Who knew truth and beauty could be so intertwined and so passionate?,” Taylor Jane Green BA, RIHR, CH, Registered Holistic Talk Therapist, and author of Swan Wheeler: A North American Mythology, Swan – A Planetary Mythology, and The Rise of Eros, 2014.
