Morning Poem -

These are my thoughts today.


Evolving Dew as It Forms

Today the trees woke me
with scent,
said see the ponds outside,
reflecting within,
and dropping
into one another,
like pearls,
formed from grit,
and repair of wounds.

There is no place to judge.
No view is good or bad.
The shack in
Mississippi.
The Texan mansion.
They are the same.

Until the Romantics
opened the mountains,
Europeans feared them.
They hid from what we flock to,
and clamor to climb.

We open and dissect.
We want to touch our past,
to see when this world began.
We want to hear the bang.

The pearl is an animal product,
secreted by a mollusk,
one living in the sea,
and the other in water that is fresh.

And now we learn that not all pearls
began to heal a wound,
to fight an invasion.
They just began,
uniform all the way through,
like our heart,
when we choose to view,
it as a drop of dew,
which is how the ancients,
thought pearls,
were formed.
