Pine box

The ancient eavesdropper

If I can
grow old
like a tree —
preserving
life with every
fiber of its
being —
then my
pine box
will not be
an end
but a
beginning.

Stomaching the last butterfly

The ancient eavesdropper

Butterfly 
wing-tips twist, 
mystery unfolds
from the cocoon’s recess. 
Spots of color flutter aloft
caught in a wild kaleidoscope, 
mimicking motion of the mighty wind
as subtle shadows undulate
on foothills and mountains.
Its tiny legs lift the weight of
a world within a world, 
eyes view life through multiple
lenses, angles and perspectives,
voyeurs, witnesses to all our actions,
meaningless words, agendas and propaganda.  
Beautiful beings, enlightened creations
soon sold as preserved souvenirs 
to tourists who walk the synthetic forests
knowing Nature’s glory days by way of 
postcards and photo-shopped images.

After the rain 
dusty petals washed
rainbow wheels 
spinning thru 
color fields.

Hitting pitch perfect

The ancient eavesdropper

Inspiration:
a sudden invitation
to stand behind a sea
of harmonious hands
scribing in unison,
inner voices
cheering
on swift
moments,
senses stealing
alphabet bases,
shared purpose
powering
poetic swings
to hit pitch perfect,
our loaded pens
home run naturals,
grand slam
pathos arcing
over ink stained
paper walls,
signature styles
breaking out of
society’s slump,
scoring spirit
in awe-struck
silence.
