Serendipity


Half-deflated balloon
smooth piano jazz
eyes're  ponder...
stared in blue
drifting star...
wonder…

Crispy apple
cut in bites
taste the clairs…
walking steps
up and down
the path
tuned up
layers

It’s not scream,
nor the lion roar –
lips are whispered…
names are screened
moon as home
power – wisdom

Law of nature
deep ethereal link
secret lesson
the resource
we’re possessed
as a blessing.
