winter goldfish--χειμερινά χρυσόψαρα

winter goldfish--χειμερινά χρυσόψαρα  ©fourteenth

winter goldfish slip on redbrown mud
little trails of ocherlines left behind

smile! the new year's not too long away!

trees tug to rooted ground; sea sprayed wind
needles the eye lids tender

laugh! the time is just right.

Let Earth and Sea and Air be still And Heaven itself: Plotinus

distant trail
distant trail©fourteenth

Let Earth and Sea and Air be still

And Heaven itself.

And then let the Body think

Of the Spirit as streaming, pouring,

Rushing and shining into it from

All sides while it stands quiet.
