…….....somewhere...insect heart...minuscule feathers unfurl against a remembered pulse...the world between flight and anchor caught in a silvery skein of dew...translucent days...a distant figure swims through the heat haze...
the lit fuse of summer sparks, crackles...time and space converge inward...imagination malleable...seconds and minutes shiver...wind-blown wheat...dreams lost and found in the field...
...touched by leaves...unburdened and adrift...wood smoke curls into tears...someone... veiled manifestation vaguely glimpsed...
...connected to the ineffable, pulled through the worlds weaved from old mythologies...there, a tolling bell embossed on a cloud... in a sky as deep as an ocean...strolling toward a vanishing point of our own making...somewhere
