Disconnections: June 24.18


A willing suspension

of everything,

deliberate slow reach

daring, cautious quest

rising skyward from some restless molecule

within —

if you’re lucky

the grass prickles your back

clover tickles your heels

summer earth pillows your head

if you’re good at it

you seem mere debris

senseless —

the fine art of watching clouds

is not quickly attained.

Practice.

Connections: September 5.16

2016-08 - 41 - Purple flowersIn the park

in the season of no name

greens waver

the high grass

restless, uncertain

twists

as a wistful air plays

against its parchment edges

sighing

a sepia wash hovers

over the letting-go

but

here and there

a regal smear

of purple.

More thanks to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives.

Connections: April 7

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERADo you remember the days

you wore hats of grass and dirt

when running uphill was an option

and chiggers got under your shirt

when the rolldown gave you the dizzies

but you ran back up again

for no reason other than doing it

breathlessly joie-de-vivre-in’ ?
