Once More, Again

I want to fall in love again

and eat mushrooms from her hand

once more and again.

Yes, I want to feel the colors of the trees

and suddenly think of her and race to work

to get the poem down that sparked-oh-

very suddenly when the maples’ red

caught my eye, the tree beside the temple.

I want to fall in love again

and feel things swell up in me,

waves and waves of it,

in a body of water that has lain wearily limp,

forever so long,

it seems.

I am tired of solitariness-

weary of the burden of aloneness,

ready to throw off this mantle, this cover

and feel again the tender graces of the new,

a new passion, another renewed desire,

which is also older and even wiser,

and, yes, much much kinder,

to himself,

once more, again.
