fading to yellow
composing the wind
to its own frame of disorder.
AntsyAntsy has nothing to do with ants.Antsy by zippip
It's an utterly human word
that speaks to our dithering minds
and fluttering hearts.
I watch them work
and smile to think
the idea would roll right off
their tiny armored backs.
Man and NatureI have a deep romance for nature. It's wild, ridiculous, and liberating. Sometimes I can feel it resounding in my chest, or it murmurs like wind-chimes.Man and Nature by zippip
Listening to nature and listening to my own nature feels like the same process. There's the stillness, then a slow awareness, growing until I can finally hear it.
I'm not alone in this. I've heard others describe it as "becoming one," but it's more lyrical than that. Pithy English phrases are so inadequate.
I sink back into nature as it's sinking into me. We're losing ourselves in each other. It's as if a dryad could step into my bones, and when we open our eyes together, we can finally see. When we part we have to come undone to peel ourselves away. I'm hers and she knows it. But she carelessly leaves something of herself in me. I carry away a bit of river maple.
Maybe that's why, when I'm standing outside, looking around, I feel like my soul has roots and branches.
Deep ThoughtsMy stubborn mindDeep Thoughts by zippip
goes diving in philosophy
with out any protection -
hunting for the rare, odd pearl,
It's been doing it for so many years
It's stretched its lungs
and slowed its heart
to help it survive
its rather extreme hobby.
I try to be supportive.
But sometimes I stand on the shore,
cursing under my breath,
wondering when my wretched brain
will come up for air.
