Michael Keshigian - That Other Place

He walks through 
the gray shadows of dusk,
shadows not dark enough 
for sightlessness
nor clear enough for recognition,
yet he construes,
upon the hazy horizon 
of delineated mountain peaks,
the outline of a human form oscillating,
a form unfamiliar 
in a dimension unknown
where light slashes invading clouds 
to bits of confetti 
then spreads like a veil
upon the indistinguishable terrain
in a place beyond
which comes, as it has before,
to those who will eventually travel,
a place, at times, that is reflected 
in our dreams
where anguish vanishes,
where the living cannot visit.

Michael Keshigian’s ninth poetry book, Dark Edges was released September, 2014 by Flutter Press.  He has been widely published in numerous national and international journals most recently including Poesy, Aji Magazine, The Chiron Review, California Quarterly, Bluepepper and has appeared as feature writer in over a dozen publications with 5 Pushcart Prize and 2 Best Of The Net nominations.
