dVerse — quadrille 116 — The Ten Thousand Things

Each atom,
mote of possibility;
synthesized, charged
puzzle pieces
within metaphysical
context; aspects of
a time-space-dimensional
continuum, simultaneously
borning and graving, in perpetuity.

I’m a daisy,
a tree,
a cloudburst,
an ocean.

I’m a song,
a laugh,
a scream,
an idea.

I’m sentient dust.

  1. Such a wonderful poem of possibilities at every level of existence. I wanted to write on this theme but my brain wasn’t up to it tonight 😅 it made me think of Puck as quoted in The English Patient:
    ‘Sometime a horse I’ll be, sometime a hound,
    A hog, a headless bear, sometime a fire;’ 🔥

  2. Heavy duty, philosophical, yet whimsical,. “I’m sentient dust” is haunting, Brings to mind Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday in TOMBSTONE, saying,” I am your huckleberry.”

  3. I drank a wine
    of possibility with Rumi
    And shivered:
    How can I scribble
    a poem of nothing
    I’m not
    just fix upon the world
    a scribble
    meant to be that poem
    for I am
    Winter and Water
    in Time
    that Poem is me

    1. Thanks, K. I read a book years ago, called, “The Mote in God’s Eye” and have stored mote away for the right occasion 😉 I’ve still got my collage stuff out and will be doing some more work. Question: are those postcards for the PO thing 5×8?
