Te Po

Hand reaching out
Turns page
Reveals bare side
Hand withdraws
Resting for a minute
On thigh
Mirror of other hand
On thigh

Hand reaching out
Grasps pen
Holds pen
Feels pen
Its weight
Texture
Length
Balance
Its place

Hand becomes pen
Becomes one with ink within
Mind and ink flowing through hand
Mind hand pen ink
One

Mind moves to paper
Melds concepts of texture
Area
Weight
Its place

Mind and paper merge
Become one
Mind hand
Paper ink
Pen mind
All one
They become the Moment
Become
Enlightenment

Or they would
If I had any idea
Of what to write…

and then you would create a huge volume of page turners .. that would be mind opener .. as insightful as your little verses ..

Brilliant, soothes, lulls the mind, draws it forward and flicks it out at the end in a wicked grin. Supercool ironic flipflop.
