trends, trinities

 

Sun and Sea - abstract, contemporary, modern art, painting -- Nancy Eckels

 

***

trends, trinities

 

i

sun, moon, water

 

sun’s light is

best reflected in

placid water. jealous,

ardent moon, ever

derivative, prowls for and

pulls us, mere

drops, into

fumbly tides

just to disturb and

shatter into

glistening everywhereshards

the image of the day.

***

ii

mine, yours, no one’s

 
we have

not seen it

before; we have

not yet sat

together,

calm, not

speaking;

have only

beaten mercilessly against beach and

one another,

either trying to

tear apart gentle

earth,

or fighting to leave in the

dust

some impression that

fades

as soon as the

next wave sees and

disagrees.

***

iii

a cord of three strands

 

only a photon

remains in me, when two

together, i and

                  you

would a beam make;

and three? i dare not even dream, a

picture

begin

to form;       a clear,

                        clear,

reflection.

“No, I don’t miss you… Not in a way that one is missed.

But I think of you.

Sometimes.

In the way that one might think of the summer sunshine

On a winter night…”

― Sreesha Divakaran, Those Imperfect Strokes
