Synergy #22 Poem a Day (Earth Day)


Recommended Posts


The power of the western wind
bends the phlegmatic pines,
is this a contrived collaboration?
Not flames on a lake
but a common duet,
a process
of nature, remedy
for stillness.

"remedy for stillness" versus "force from the wind" - is inertia taking over? :-)

Enigmatic, to be sure.


"the phlegmatic pines,"


"Not flames on a lake"
