dust paintings

Posted to Poetry

My mind catches at images
and is successful at times
in translating them to finger
that stirs at the dust
that layers the moment with a dream
that continues long after I am awake
and am able to view
those translations
those dust paintings
that finger has made
in an attempt to explain
those hard thought things
that I don’t always admit to
but have always known.
