A Poem by ayaz daryl nielsen

Already Ours

Words lost in the forest
invisible behind closed eyes         
Green inspiration of mature 
blackberry and raspberry thickets, 
of wild marshes ripe with 
cranberries and blueberries,
unlit by mind-light’s crimson rays 
Above thicket and marsh, grey 
squirrel-forum and good, loose 
magpie’s black-and-white 
directions:  ‘the green inspiration 
of an out-breath as they’re spoken, 
words as they must be when 
they’re written - embrace them!   
They are already yours’
