An original poem.


the sun appeared suddely in a gray

sky and rain continued. the shaft of light

broke through the trees to land where a dead log lay-

ing its soul to the ground slowly in sight

of weeds was praying to the rain. it is

a holy place. rain collected inside

to form a small world for a genesis

of smaller lives. the world cares for outside

appearances. even death is alive

within this sunlit shower. there is not

much time before the mystical lives are

destroyed by a wandering cloud. they taught

the reasons on paper, vernacular

of trees. but wisdom is here first derived.
