The Artist

Irrelevant but connected time draws us close

to a mindful revelation that perhaps time

is all but some sort of cartoon image

and we are all caught

in the artists’ bare hand

Breaking

I think I’d like to be a wombat

living underground under a tree

in these uncertain times

 

in solitude

 

in isolation

 

I could go into hibernation

sleep like a bear

sleep the winter months away

with no knowledge of the troubles in the world – without breaking, without loss

 

I would awake in spring

after the storm

with calm restored
