Reflections On Reflection

If you look into the pond, you’ll see

The sky reflected,

The white clouds,

The world drenched in the beauty

Of clear water

On firm ground.

But if you’ll turn your head

From pond-life

And look around

And up

Onto the land and sky,

You will see the real world

In its worry,

In its glory,

So much bigger,

Spinning by.

Going up?

Sliding down?

Where is north?

Where’s the sun?

In perspective

And life

Every day

Every time,

Slant will shape

The view

You’ll find.

What Noise?

“I cannot stand the city,” they said,

Homesick for dark, wooded silence.

“It’s all clamor and racket.”

 

“It’s my refuge,” he smiled

At the trucks, people, sirens.

“The streets thrum the best lullaby…”
