Shining threads

Shining threads

Saturday, 1 January 2011


Lightning flashes on the metal of a lone leviathan
lurching across the landscape.

A robin rests having devoured an earthworm
(which was on its way to nowhere in particular).

Drumbeats draw us closer into the pack -
signifiers of the heart's rhythms between.

Clouds dissipate to reveal the stark radiance
of a sun-drenched sky.

Time marches on, occasionally obliterated
by peaks of transcendence.

Standing on top of a rusty vehicle,
the rollicking world pans out before me.

The verdant earth splits wide open
and a shining symbol, towering, sprouts forth.
