What is in a location?

When a dense mist-cloud envelopes the day

with invisible prickle of raindrops

that decorate one’s eyelashes and ears,

one feels like one is walking in a dream

without the clock of time beating in brain,

or even heart, and that the world’s conflicts

are delusions demanded by evil,

which is an unnecessary nightmare….

Our bodies are more water than solid—

our thoughts resemble blue, running water,

as our most generous thoughts blossom in blue

like gentle rain clouds blanketing the sun.

Those living by water are happier

than those who shun shoreline, lakeside, or pond!
