UNDER CONSTRUCTION

a movement –

a development in progress.

a hardship in life

makes it difficult

to embrace the dynamics

of a narrow person’s view.

in a bowl the water is still.

in a river it is a flowing source.

that contrast shows

how people can be.

but sometimes another change

starts to emerge –

a hardening of the arteries

where the heart couldn’t take anymore.

 

BUTTERFLY DANCE

a ball placed

on the crest of a hill

is nudged

and rolls quickly

down into a valley.

it can mimic

the feel of anxiety.

sometimes one needs

a new force

to propel oneself forward.

it’s effect everything –

a ripple effect

from each stop for nectar.

that vibrant beauty

is a one of a kind draw

for a little sugar

to install energy and vitality

to lift oneself into brightness.
