Description:




Shangri-La



I. Myths and legends,
Do you dwell among angels?

They play horns, blueness
And green wings beckoning:
Sway—
Unaware and in tune.

Hands open,
Like a rooster’s proud tail—

“Shangri-la, Shangri-la” and it
is truly believed by all.

II. Grassy patches
Billow in mist—
Dapples of berries, and leaves
Folded in prayer.

Whisper:
“Carry us away,
to Shangri-la, Shangri-la…”

III. Yellow dirt—
Golden flecks of God
Kick at the feet of pecking chickens
‘cooing’ and ‘clucking’,
the choir of the cool and calm.

A little, nameless girl
Pets a stout and smiling goat.
Small, devilish horns.

—Her pet
and only friend.

IV. The snake,
hissing a song upon grasses,
does not frighten.

Nearby, lions smile
At potato bugs
Crawling on claws.

They are all engaging
In conversation—

And,
They are all living
And letting be.

  staccato, yet rushing; it feels relaxing yet worrying to read this for some reason.

and that's up to me as a reader to relate in any way, i guess, which i do, and i find this to be quietly liberating.

and why? you flit from scene to scene, temporal and metaphysical angles co-joined, a part of each other, clashing yet serene.

there is an overall element to this piece which i find i arc toward subconsciously.

letting things be.
yes.
