Infant Towhee

Infant towhee, like
Crystal, rebroadcasts
Light from our star--
Is no less alive
Than we are-- has
A story to tell, as do
We,  and it sounds
Like a little bell.

Temporal Geometry

Small, large,
A moment is
At last the
Charge it is
Holding --
No given point
In the past ever
Stops unfolding.

Flying Flower

Far-ranging pollinators,
Butterflies return what
They ate as caterpillars.
Pupae attached to  tree,
Rose , wait secure;from
Chrysalis eclose, unfurl.
Finally wings  sail  air. 
I  remember clothesline
Bed sheets whipping on
Windy days when I was
A  child  --same  sound,
Done in little in the wild.

The outside
Of any circle
Describes an
Greater one.

Not Even Nothing

Not even nothing can
Exist in a vacuum where,
In quantum concert, waves
Of possibility, virtual, in
Space and time --irreducible--
Result in you and me.
Nothing unreal lasts
For very long in forces
Around weak or strong
Charges in disturbance--
Light orphaned in dance
Springs from timeless nowhere.
I do not know if it
Can wholly return there.

Mind, time, distillate
Turned upon itself:
Futures seek pasts,
Petals, constellated
Light, galactic dawn
And earth to raise
A flower on.

Unceasing Surprise

I have felt rain
Resume, light
On plume and
Bearded fall.
Iris calls sunshine
And shower 
Alike in cosmic 
Whispers I scarcely
Hear at all.
