Beyond The Province Of The Mind

Beyond the province of the mind
branches twist and forever clutch
thin grey witch tresses we seek and find

Dry leaves to crumble-with the crumbling shrouds -
and under the tree roots still mud brown
hidden places too- where their gods went down


There in the rivers flowing
dim in the light a strange knowing
some thread that answers to waters going
and the tangled ghosts in the winds blowing

Beyond the province of the mind branches twist and forever clutch thin grey witch tresses we seek and find philosophical and a sense of mystery you convey..... thank you very much. tony
Isabelle, you provide some strong imagery in this piece and though it has a somber mood it is quiet enchanting. Thanks for a poem I enjoyed reading.
