Day 1681, landscape.

Our cultured landscape

~

with fields

square

like the mind

of a farmer

and trees

planted

by the rhythm

of the ranger

~

and the road

we take

follows the creek

that brings

water

down

over rounded

stones

laying in the silt

of forefathers

Day 1680, smooth.

It froze

after the first rain

and leaves fell

~

the next morning sun

broke the ice

and we drifted

apart

~

the distance

warmed

and the rough edges

melted

~

soon

this all

is one again

Day 1679, far apart.

The world speeds by

seen through the left window

of my car

~

at a glance

I see a handful

of black sheep

grazing

far apart

~

where I come from

the sheep mostly

stick together

~

I guess these black sheep

don’t

Day 1678, distorted.

I like to look

at the reflection

of a blue sky

in one of the large structures

blocking

my horizon

~

the reflection adds

a much needed

distortion

of what I wish

to see

Day 1676, stand.

If you look

~

at what you perceive

~

from the right angle

and height

~

it will

align

~

but

be sure

to stand still

Day 1675, closer.

I see clouds

floating

above the roof

I lie

under

~

they seem so close

and far away

~

I ask myself

staring upwards

~

do I want to be closer

to those clouds

or the roof

Day 1674, playing.

The urge

to pull

on the first words

dangling

in your mind

~

when asked

for an opinion

~

curious

for what will happen

you give

in

and the rest

arrives

~

you pulled

like the cat

with seven lives

Day 1673, her.

She was standing there

forever

still in silence

~

I could see

her posture

knew where to go

~

up the stairs

to get her…

Day 1671, against.

Our energy

seemingly

comes

from the same source

~

the wall

we stand against

~

ignoring

the fusillades

we look

the other way

~

and sometimes

we meet

each other

Day 1670, sideways.

I like to climb

higher

but all the lines

spoken

come towards me

~

I need lines

spoken

besides me

towards a step

and the next

~

please talk

besides me
