WATERPROOF SOUL

waterproof soul

not for sale
only for discovery
via the long and twisted paths
under the deeps
and through caverns jet
granite obstacles
razor wire
storm raged
dangerous alchemies
vapid drafts
there
fragile
beautifully precious as a child's curls
or their soft trusting palm
their big hearted hopes
and wild outlandish dreams
beyond star, even galaxy
the waterproofing
unlikely entrant
surprising companion
transforming agent
cleanse me
monsoon madness
cool my heated
sun baked being
the desert greening
oasis opulence
riveting realism
and now
the seasons, they come, they go
but
protected
tsunami proportions are
droplets
but
to
be 
purified
by 
those who
understand finally the technology of being

ARCHBISHOP JONATHAN BLAKE IS INNOCENT-HE HELPED STOP A PAEDOPHILE
