Montana Public Radio – Poem of The Day

Dave Caserio – Poem of the Day on Montana Public Radio with Cherie Newman:

‘Bardo Thule’

by Dave Caserio
My brother, expecting, thinking, what?
That the wind would waft our father’s ashes
Gently out of his hand, convey them
As though a squall of butterflies, as
White bits of the soul, as wafer
Upon the tongue, to dissolve

In holiness and birdsong
Until whatever flutter of spirit
Reconstitutes into desire
For the love that releases him
So it might gather such atoms
Again for another try.
