The Feminine Principle




For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have, and if you go to draw at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant is its flow.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


boundary breaker
ocean bites into the shore
like Eve the apple
cataclysm of ice-caps
old salt solution

rivers swell, banks break
tides roll and sweep, seethe and creep
deluging fissures
searching blind and blighted creeks
for enfranchisement

water sinuous
as serpent mythology
suggests oases
silently the silvered planes
mirror glass ceilings

virtual pome of
hardbitten technology
where's the salvation
in knowledge, remote control
of what was Eden?

winter follows Fall
frost exploits cracks in earth's crust
sun shifts latitude
earth and water, air and fire
reconfigure strife

civilisation
pales to liquidated text
rules of engagement
anticipate bottom lines
the Garden a maze

no visionary
stake in well-earned real estate
yielding fruit past the
sum of integral parts, still
New Eve, New Adam
