freestyle sonnet #095: CONTEMPLATING IBN ARABI'S SUPREME POLYMATH ALONG THE JAMES


I reckon my Meccan revelations will come 
walking along Rivanna subdivision tracks, 
thoughts pointed east, boots tapping boom bap, heartbeat drum 
synchronized to river crows cawwing as freight stacks 

clack-clack past. I reckon my Meccan most divine 
inspirations will come somewhere between Gladstone 
and Bremo, perhaps that milepost sixty-nine 
near Strathmore yard, crossing over to be alone 

on those solitary Seven Islands, soaking 
up Universal truth at my sub-atomic 
level, drunk of heart off mystical love cloaking 
mundane existence with fractal astro-logic 

adding magnificence to senseful solitude. 
My Meccan revelations are James River viewed.
