PROMINENCE

His was a place of prominence
on the fringe, exiled poet hero
cloud meditator, lifting green
up jungled mountain tops
eleven degrees north, serene
along marginal line imagined
all turns in optimum balance
rejuvenating rain follows days
beginning with incubating heat
from highest seats now walks
the streets, burdens in hand
birds sing in a flowering bush
orchids stretch their stems
to bloom, opening lure of life.
