Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Island

Once upon a time
We came across a waterfall
Hidden deep in the woods
Where we splashed and played
Like giddy children
In the argent liquid pools
And let the cool mist
Spray diamonds in our hair
Our warm embrace
A safe haven
As if the whole world
Was just this place
At just this time
Our own private island

Where I Belong

I belong with the fishes
In the cold deep down under
Where my passion is stirred
By the riot of colors
In an undulating sea
Where I am the outlander
In supplication to Poseidon’s
Cerulean domain
Where my body is weightless
My voice silent
And heartbeat strong

Space Needle

Piquant petals
Pierced through an ardent needle
Thrust into heavens

I love the dichotomy between these two wondrous expressions of art. The cold straight steel of the Seattle Space Needle in comparison to the fragile fluid glass of Chihuly. Both are magnificent landmarks in their own rights.

Solstice

This summer solstice
Golden sun’s prodigious eye
Aligns with flowers

After

Mirage of trees
Shimmer in reflection
Cold hard glass

Spiritless crow
Adorning the sidewalk
Window strike

The unfortunate demise of this crow gave me an opportunity to appreciate for a moment the beautiful fragility of its being. What a privilege to hold such a captivating creature before it is rendered back to dust and a poignant reminder that in a mere instant, the miracle of being can be extinguished.
