Opened like a morning leaf exposed beneath the moon, Resting in the tentacles of a clouded ink coccoon. Wringing hands now rest at peace- the solitude of night, a lantern in the wilderness the miracle of flight. Dancing on the tabletops or falling from a swing, is noticing the networking of every living thing. Observation is the art that shows a single frame, experience will turn to stone the given and the gained.
