Poems

In the Heart of Time

1.  Time yields
2.  and half-opens
3.  its delicate depth. (Doors
4.  that protect/shield/guard each other; that open onto each other;
marks,
5.  traces of sea. An autumn of kindling and dead leaves. In its
bottom/base:
6.  The translucent thickets of pleasure; its intimate ivies:
7.  Gold:
8.  Foliations of light: Fire that rakes root in the flowering metal,
9.  and a fine moss,
10. incandescent.
