seeking light

seeking light
the surrounding dark
does not embrace
but cedes to itself
finding refuge within

the centre

displaced
some proclaim
that they are
the centre

while unaware
of its place
the centre itself
never says a word

 

for r.d.s.

toward a definition of beauty

a snowflake

free of even the slightest breeze

will still not fall straight

somewhere

somewhere
buried under the snow
an old tennis ball

and somewhere
buried the jaw
which grasped it

somewhere
buried deep
what was once joy
