A Brief Moment


DSC08158A brief moment

When my understanding

Of the world

Begins to clear

A finite

A speck of the infinity

All that has past

All that might be

Layers on layers

Woven in patterns

In intricate designs

I long to stay

In this moment

But all the other realities

 Will again flow back in

Hibernation


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hibernation
It is a matter of orbits and tilts
Of light verses dark
Warm over cold
A means of survival

To flourish
When all things seem alive
To hibernate
When life is frozen against the low angle light

Each morning the sun moves along the horizon
It is that season
As day equals night

To awaken
Out of a den
To emerge from the mud
Or beneath the matted leaves
Whether the earth is ready or not

Life is stirred
Weaken, yet hopeful
To what life offers ahead

Curious Friday: A Matter of Design


DSC07274a

Look around
Life made of small patterns
Small designs
Woven into the fabric
Of a world we see everyday
Easy to miss
One has to look close
Take the time
Yet when you see it
All the small patterns
All the small designs
The whole looks different
And maybe a better place

The picture above is of a fungus called Splash Cups or Bird Nest fungus – Crucibulum laevehe The fungus lives on decaying wood and the bird’s nest is the reproductive part. The little eggs inside are called peridoles that look like seeds but contain spores inside. The peridoles open and little drops of water splash into the cup spread the spores to surrounding areas.
They are usually only about a 1/4 inch in size.

How Few Words

How few words can I use
To express all that
I see and feel

DSC09365

For it seems more words I use
The less they seems real

DSC09658

Finding that balance
I haven’t reach there yet
Nor do I think I ever will
