Perfection

November 24, 2009

My perfection
is not in lightening scribed
on paths of stone,
not once and always
truth and substance –

No, it is sand
trickling over rocks and
between bridges
forming pearl and eroding rock,

broken, and in the breaking –
beautiful
fractured, and in the pieces –
whole.
