Low Lake

quixotic puddle, a surrounding circled

by sandy ringlets of time under tree trunks

bearing desire, beneath Earthly happenings

below fears each a different shade of brown.

 

awaiting the hands of the archaeologist

who lives in Earthly happenings but digs

deeper than the laborers of nearby towns

and fills pales with rocky memories to look through later

just to find the round forming tangible time,

 

 

which culminates in the rolling stones they release

from their wrinkled fingers and soft brain tissue

as it thinks of what is later

as an idea

through each individual estuary laden sphere of

circled time wheeling life creating characteristic.

“Animism” 

A white vase, 

Shaped like an hourglass

Cut in half and overturned 

Its never held sand but it can 

Tell time like everything I’ve ever seen

In this time it holds a large fern. 

I wonder,

Does the teller of time feel proud

To nurture and hold? 

Does it feel jealous of always being 

Overshadowed by what it holds? 

I would feel used but I’m not 

A white vase, 

Shaped like an hour glass

Cut in half and overturned
