Path

Path

I said everything and all of creation
flinched

As a flame shudders
so did the carbon-based life forms shudder
momentarily

Everything
and the field twitches
Everything
and a comet’s hair is brushed back from its face
Everything
and a boulder feels wistful

A word is a path
that leads to a path

  1. "a comet's hair", a "wistful" boulder, a field that "twitches": wonderful images here. I love the concluding couplet.
