A Meditation On Bob Dylan’s “Trouble No More”

Original portrait by Eric Ward, © 2016. All rights reserved.


The sound
Of the voice
Glistens like
Wet blood
Across the
Sick cool
Pale hue
Of time
In the
Indelible memory
Of God


The holy depth
Of imagination
Has been struck
By the
Divine hand
Of the muse
The poet genuflects
Curly-tailed eyes
To give thanks
For the path
That leads
Him to
The river

Feeble lips drink

To taste
The seven dreams
The light sing
