Leaves

I see time and space

shimmering beneath layered leaves,

close against the distant milky blue.

I see light and movement through jagged ovals

Branches held by opposing strings

Pulling, giving, taking, swaying

Lightly lurching

With everything in detail

As the sunlight in the leaves becomes evening

Night Lights

Back lit grey clouds recede

behind the infinite blue foreground

 

Imperceptible masses glide together

on atmospheric scales

Creating and dispersing

Above this point lit

Skin of life

 

I feel closer to that blue moving mass

than to this wind whistling box of still air

Occupant

Racing next to me
