{Tue 14 November 2006}   Insect Insight
Insect Insight

Elusive truth, when platitudinous,
Unclouded, blinds us to its happy light;
Its brightness then too obvious for sight,
We miss it still and moan its loss to us.
Then miserable, we seek in darker paths
Transforming myst’ries of enlightenment:
Unravelling myths, by man and heaven sent,
We pursue insight through our deepest wraths.

Until one day (by chance, not skill),
While gazing in the looking glass,
We suddenly spy a dragonfly,
Beyond our shoulder, on the hill,
Which, as it flits from pool to grass,
Gives light intensely to the sky.

where is
your
warm space
soft space
that
cool place
firm place
where
afraid-angry
i could be
held
without holding on
in
without touching sides
small
inside your smile

where
i could be
warm, soft, cool, firm
held in small
happy
