Moonish Lodestar

by Watercourse Quartet



For every perception there are more possibilities than one equal and opposite
Pavement crack plants
Gnats conversation
Sudden, forgettable beginning spurring evolution
It takes a word to disturb
Like a top down view of birds flying in a stone spiral topped with The World Egg
White dragon in the sky shedding colors looms morning stroll, and empty street but for
Watercourse way, where else?
Wind. Fire. Soil. Mountains are manifestations too
The wind can be seen passing between trees
Rearranged: wind sees between trees passing, wind seas pass tree to tree
After initial plucking, who would put the dawn to sleep?
Who affirms validity? Who reaffirms validity?
A not entirely inhuman, gasp

Buoyancy. Submerging in air we run and think not that we fly for fish fly as birds swim
through the ocean of the heavens, whose horizontal matrimony to the earth we
guard, Den. A Den we guard halfheartedly.
These voices do not all agree.

Do not all feel equal investment.
At each and every moment.
Yet I feel that any listener can hear a clear desire among all voices present to stay in the
boat together and keep the boat afloat.
The flow.
I wish such a spirit could find all humanity waiting and receptive.
