evergreen dreams

My vocabulary is
a seamless verse
of lines combined
with the meaning
of infinity written
on paper ... this is
no scapegoat for
feeling ... this is
both reason and
rhyme mixed with
the metaphors
of living ... awake,
aware, and breathing
an endless sigh
of relief ... I write
my epitaph daily,
no editing needed,
I am verse as free
as any penned
by Whitman,
by Thoreau,
by Bukowski ...
I am scripture
compiled
and recited
by devotees
kneeling not
in prayer, but
lives lived in
evergreen dreams
daily.
