and another

by Charlie Morgan

noises keep vigil on the stillness
of the frosty veil of pre-dawn 6:00;
a warmth of el sol, under horizon's
shoulders waits to warm the land.

a frame of fragility surrounds me,
seeing true Nothingness, multiplied.
a crack-whore of the universe;
a summer's child, a bud, a blossom.

camping in the skirts-of-town, shelter;
up against the dark skyline, my shadow
bides his time playing Crazy Eights;
waiting for the visit from el sol.

life stirs in the gelantinous mire,
a hand chooses us, takes us out
sets us free. another life begins.

Im with Marie, Charlie: that last stanza is perfectly inspired and overall awesome. It complements this poem to a tee!
