Bearers of Truth

Who are my trusted guides?
Who are my best mentors?
Who can I depend on for the truth?

Guides are only guides.
They keep to the same path.

Mentors are only mentors.
They can pass on only what they know.

The one I depend on for the truth --
that one can only be heard from within.

Rope coils into a basket this cupola
of light, a glint that slices through
as if sound were drained of all color
but insight. Hung out to dry,

it swings in the lazy adulation of a breeze,
nesting place for snails, worms, and the startled
cardinal that beds in its furrows. Brief
as a lull between flights, its promise

that the predatory cease seems now
balm before a storm, cinnamon tufts
at the end of joss sticks twisting upwards
singed gasps from an oxygen tank.
