Ice Dragon

The rock of the Berry Falls
Has an Ice Dragon hiding in plain site
He rests between the cracks
In between the light

Whisper shadow footfalls
Tails rush to burn
Wind shift through
Other sides emerge

Bridging another equinox
Time has fallen in heaps of color
Rising stark on the other side
Above the scattered floor

“Beauty is composed of many things and never stands alone. It is part of horizons, blue in the distance, great primeval silences, knowledge of all things of the earth… It is so fragile it can be destroyed by a sound or thought. It may be infinitesimally small or encompass the universe itself. It comes in a swift conception wherever nature has not been disturbed.”
~ Sigurd Olson

Fungus barnacles sprout new life for the fallen limb
As with all life there comes an end
Nature reminds us of the circle

“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.”

a lazy current carries the angst away
