But a Reflection

113 - Copy

I see so clearly

and am sure I know what is real; cause and effect, color and touch,

all true to form, dependable to my senses.

But then shake and shimmer ripples,

the dark beneath the light rises


where I thought all was solid—

and I wonder at my surety, and I wonder where my doubt meets truth.

All the years and all the rules, all the parameters of safety,

and here there is a whirl,

and there

an unsettling.

I see so clearly; but beyond, beneath,

weighted water is fingering through, and this tangle is

where my faith meets doubt,

and innocence meets new vision

that would sometimes refresh and yet often overwhelm.

I always felt secure with safe edges, but this evanescent gathering of particles is

but a reflection of what is real beyond.
