Life Patterns

LIFE PATTERNS

 

the slam of a door

ended the silence

in the tower of books

 

the air was carrying

a breeze from Positano

 

on a small note was written

how the world would end

and what that would mean to you

 

in an universe expanded like this

those tears before the darkness

are as pointless as the gold rush

 

strange people are coming by

to stare at postcards

of distant places

 

behind the window panes

of the old house at the corner

somebody died and tea was served

 

in the park down the road

incense was burnt and

leaves were falling

 

children were playing

and dogs were barking

a junky put his golden shot

 

the tales of the

drizzling rain falling in silence

brought clarity about this life

 

and when everything

fell in its patterns

the void started spinning
