The ten thousand things
All springing forth and going
To shallow silent pools
Thoughts come into the mind
Clouds float across the sky
An orange blur leaps onto a table
Sitting in a dark pond
Shadows play across the deep
Angelus bells toll me from my sleep
Curious crash! Brash! And salty spray!
Poseidon lumbers and would bellow a Bray–
But for Sophia: mother in kind mind’s eye.
