Landscape of a Land Crab

There once was a land crab named Bligh
Who’s demeanor was naturally shy
He would hide in his hole
Acting more like a mole
Than a cantankerously snappish guy

The Mystery of Symme”tree”

The meandering pattern
of rivers and veins
branches and horizons repeating
the grace of symmetry
found in nature
where function
overrules perfection
Fractured fractals
in balanced harmony
sing the universal code of
mathematical probability
bringing imperfect beauty
to life

Lichen Love

Where once there was nothing
Sprouts delicate symbiosis
Emergent energy intertwined
Into nature’s tangled tattings
Blue green as earth’s beginnings
With antediluvian memories
Surrounding us unnoticed
In a lichen lace soliloquy

Trapped

3C80894B-526F-40B0-BB34-8BAE927FFD7E

There is no point in running
Because there’s no place to go
Trapped by our own behavior
In a state of internal limbo
While the world keeps turning
And nature rebounds
In our absence
