Stonegate

Before Time was, I am

When all that is
     was but a whisper on the wind
     I was that wind.

And finer still,
     the wind behind the wind
     the hour before the day
          underscores sky
          with a horizon

The breath within the breath
     The sigh within dawn's
     eye-bright, healing light
     that tumbles down upon
     the gate within this stone

This place of dread, dark fire
This mountain called desire
     pry that stone gate
     to my remembered Star

--A gift from Alice, 16 April 2017
