If it’s magic

Why can’t we make it everlasting

Like the sun that always shines?

Wonderful (if naive) Reflections on a Beach

After the Winter Storm

The Shore sparkles, scrubbed clean

Skies washed

Pale blue,

Dilute a

Water coloured

Ocean.

Inseparable Mutuality,

Innocent integration,

Forest and Sea, 

Sand and Sky,

 Subtly nuanced reflections

Of a state that still exists

Somewhere beyond

The Excesses of our Corrupting hands,Photo on 2015-01-19 at 12.52 PM

Still resisting

The Midas touch of humanity

Which puts

Everything in the service of its

Insatiable appetites.

‘If it’s magic,’ this perfect peace,

I Wonder Stevie,

Why can’t we make it everlasting?
