Being and Becoming

 

A proverbial Chant:

 

I’m becoming a poem

observed and in color

the disheveled figure

pacing back and forth

who catches the eye

 

Topographic illumination

of a humanized vista

details of ivy vines

wild hemlock

or distant ducks

attributions guiding

to reasonable rest

resonating delineating

a well directed scene

with deft certainty

our destination lacks

 

At once a young human

learning basketball from his sister

while in the distance

a pickup game resonates across the park

with shouts and hoop vibrations

and a well intentioned father

unloads a bucket of baseballs

his internal compensations demand

a bright yellow Hummer to violate

the budding leaves

of an uncertain spring

 

Angel wings appear

dark and threatening

around an oblique sun

 

A moment not unique

in the long nowness

 

The clarity is disconcerting

as we are consciously mad

figure and ground

flicker indistinguishable

 

 

Calling all Watchers wherever you are

 

always present but distant

peer through my eyes

pretend they are yours

 

I may be the Object

but this game is subjective

always Being and Becoming

all differences illusion

erased and reclaimed.

How very timely, with all the recent news (Boston, Seattle)

 

The clarity is disconcerting

as we are consciously mad

 

I really like this BIG choice:

 

wild hemlock

or distant ducks

 

Just really inventive. :)

I feel a wandering off course in this, but maybe that was your point - being and becoming.
