Meditations on the Vishuddha Chakra

Meditations on the Vishuddha Chakra*
 
Prologue
Only the lull I like, the hum of your valvèd voice
gets me every time
if I get past this point
it will be
riding high on an elephant-
shaped vowel
all ears
for the HUM
the AUM
of you
throat raised
to blow
an answering
matching
yes
in the shape of an
O
one
O
passing through
the other
like smoke rings
as if either
never were
but ever are
expanding
and I can
finally
learn to
chant the chant of dilation
 
Sherry Robbins, from Pilgrimage        *italic lines Walt Whitman’s
