Whimsy of Life

Whimsy of Life

Whimsical life, here, then there in an instant
Visible, than only light in the form of a memory
Memory, a powerful energy that celebrates an
Existence no matter its significance and yet
We remember the portion of life we saw emerge,
Disappear in the sacred earth, a wheel of infinity
Our lives, an inextricable part, everything that we
Know for all returns and unrecognizable as it is we
Inevitably find a laugh, a voice, a face, a tear we
Remember and recognize again and again across a
Crowded rom, in a whispering pine, trickle of water
Blowing sand, each grain knowing it’s special place,
It’s shape to help stabilize an artful dune an hour,
A day, a million years to form a cliff, a grotto, home.

To Audrey, my sympathy, my love, Carl 9-6-17
