life is the patchwork quilt of soil and tree,
squared and plaited, broken only by
meanderings of river or stream. cities of
steel or mud, brick or wood pepper landscapes
of movement and place. the horizon is forever
ahead and elusive till broken by vessels of man,
or wings of fowl: we all fly, swallow sky,
entwined with one revealing moment of eternity.
