This Picture Wants to Be a Poem

Margaret Simon has an image on her site, Reflections on the Teche, a photo taken by Taylor Saxena in Madeira, Portugal (this is not that photo, this is mine). As I wrote today, I listened to “Weightless”, finishing in about 4 min. 


i see your Near
i sense your Far
a leaf a branch
a shooting star
and all the while
you meditate
in Unknown Space
and can’t relate
the places that
your Mind has gone
but still i watch
for any Dawn
