Joyful Impermanence ::: Contemplative Glimpses



:::

Joyful Impermanence
in an age where some kind of stability 
is often viewed as a welcome respite 
I revel in the certain predictability 
that the tides 
will carry away my small pieces of stone landart 
I quietly created.

Without fuss
 without drama,
without a display of appreciation the waves will come
 take and carry forward

A small joy fills me
a feeling of tingling anticipation
 as I watch the incoming tide creep closer
 nestle
 tease
embrace 
and finally wholeheartedly swallow my stones.

I am alive
 when I am wholeheartedly
 swallowed.

  1. i very much appreciate this post and your art process.
    from one who also lives by the sea and river - i too am fed by the constant change, of tides, of the breezes and winds that appear where land and sea meet, moon cycles and seasons. i think it makes you very mindful and cognizant of the impermanence of all.

    1. yes ...my heart now is finally at home ... I have been here almost 2 years .. a river comes crashing down ... the estuary flanks the bay where the mountains meet the sea ... water ..moving water is what binds it all together for me .. :-)
