Healer’s Blueprints

I was inspired to write “Healer’s Blueprints” by catalogue cards distributed at Jennifer Still’s Millennium Library’s Serious Play workshop.

fingerprints of your love
bathe the unarmed wounded — me —

stumbled into cracks
the ones the genetic prophets spoke of

flowers I remember
on Venetian masks
before — I —
the lonely traveller
shed the blood of my childhood songs

I find
a renaissance today
face unmasked
all unmasked
while you listen
to the instrument of my words
strained through a voice caught in a cry
and you replied
with a lullaby
