Double Helix

July 27, 2011

the butterfly effect is another word for karma
depending on perspective and dialect,
all see change through a different lens
the causation equation is the law of nature
life is the force and breath is the fuel
respiration and perspiration
photosynthesis or telekinesis
the natural course of the winding river
a fractal field each twig reveals
in wind hear echoes of a frost swept forest
waiting patiently for summer sun
ascending pointed peaks above the trees
then a glacial glissade granted only by gravity
such gifts are these and how blessed are we
to participate daily in earth mamma’s song

Thank you Thursday Poets Rally! It’s been fun.

I would like to nominate Joel Hall <http://joelhall.wordpress.com/&gt; for the next award.
