Walking on Water

is easy
inland
no lakes to speak of
brook jumping doesn't really cut the mustard
but
away from it all
close knit
the place is here
deeply felt centredness
letting go
following
in
untrodden footsteps

ii
re-membering future
angels, saints and lovers
fragments of
the nine protectors:
courage of evergreen
dream of enlightenment
strength of earth
wisdom of ages
brightness of winter morning sun
joy of angels
hope of new dawn
encouragement of ancestors
flow of energy
nine bindings be about me today
weaving stone cut patterns

iii
winter
takes the weak
merciless winds tear at
aching limbs
constructing winter sets
on earthstage
brokenness presenting
opportunities to reassess
look with fresh eyes

iv
reenchanted
we wearily trudge toward
registration
new impressions
muted
frosty coloured
morning
