SANDS OF TIME

“SAND OF TIME” published November 2020 by Kind Over Matter

From a moment of transformation—

burst forth beauty,

and the existing knowing before the ages.

I knew.

Then swept away

with the force of a torrent

I took my life.

I didn’t know.

All sides of me collapsed together

caving like ancient icebergs

eaten away by the recent century.

Lost.

Michael Bailey "HALEAKALA - HOUSE OF THE SUN"

Washed upon the shore

I opened my eyes to view a new world,

one I had seen before

but not fully taken into my heart

enough to protect me from the torrent.

The practical side of life

turned me upside down

in spite of what I knew.

I want to stay on the shore

and pick up the pieces.

I want to pick up

the chards of light lost —

and plunge them into my heart

so I may see the beauty

and lost love that went unnoticed.

Lift me up again

so I may see the that shore

so I may walk on its glass lit sands

squishing its rounded corners between my toes

feeling every part of my being and every aspect of its light.

I walk supported.

—Michael Bailey
