earthquake (04 Mar 2011)

15 Mar

yes I think I was trying to
work out what that energy was –
a heaving condensing

sound became quiet
  or poised
the earth became alert

it was the conscious
the awareness of the awake

and the allowing
  allowing jolt of

what is child-birth like?

can an earthquake
register on those Richter scales?
when a new energy – so strong –
is set upon earth
and rolls to heaven

      Hey Jingle. Thanks for your love 🙂 I wrote this after an earthquake in Wellington (NZ) hit at 2 in the morning, waking me up. It was one week after the big earthquake that devastated Christchurch (NZ). And yes, as you say, one week before the catastrophic one hit Japan. So many earth changes. I have a few more poems along this line which I’ll be posting over the next few days.
