Self-Healing on a November Day

You know that melancholy loam
At the bottom of your heart?
– it is supposed to be there.

You know that high grey sky
Above the moors?
– ever and always, it was so –

You are allowed to ask the heart
“Show me your deepest mulch!”
You are allowed to ask the sky,
“Over-arch me, then, as you are!”

This, then, makes them happy –

No need to grin like California
Insisting on a positive outcome
Day by day –

You know that melancholy
Grey sky
That is your heart’s deepest language?

– Still and all
It speaks to you
with love
