I stand before the great mirror of antiquity
trying desperately, almost in vain,
to understand what I see and where this
came from, what process created that
face and expression, the eyes peering back at me
and the questions, so full of questions.
I stand before Blackstone glacier and the
refelction has changed, so too the questions
as I have but a glimpse of something
beyond here beyond this time, a step
back in one sense to nature’s power
and creation of wondrous landscapes
A glimpse forward while the glacier calves
and the out of sight processes
that churn at all times forever
moving and pushing and adapting
as needed, send fragments floating
past while I sit within the kayak.
In mère minutes I have come
full circle and experienced the past,
future, and present, to live within
the now, with an eye/I to what is
beyond this place to where
this started and where we came from.
