Beyond the Sway


From this to               that    to
That              to

This to that               to
                                        and that     and
                                   that             and
This —–            Stop!!!



             Ceiling fan whiz
Virgin breeze              bereft of scent   Dozing  nose swells in smug bliss
       Soft thuds           afar       outside
Sacred hands  working out their cross

Scrapes of spades       sandy crunch
Tongs tingling          taste of summer lunch
Still rest on my moist tongue     asleep

Lids          shut out unreal       shut in
Me       in my world          unchanging
