many things have gone before
yet, this is an instant creation
done as meditation
images to fill to find to bring
rich oxygen
for my blood

look over my shoulder
see the world there at my feet
embracing the troubles therein
that life would have me meet

simple words
from a simple life
everything imperfect,
the way it’s all been planned
nothing is for certain
in a most uncertain land

out upon the ocean
in the forest deep
surrounded by a desert
lost in a meadow green

working in the field, he stops and looks above

up above the heavens

finds there beauty serene
