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.
