Now open


~ 1 ~

Copying behavior
Origin of life on earth
A silent bud.

~ 2 ~

Sweet melon flavor
Twist with lemon drops
Now open.

~ 3 ~

Birth vortex
How many more loops
To recall a soulmate.

~ 4 ~

Feelings leak…
I beat myself up
To the teeth.

~ 5 ~

Long day
Two eyes open wild
1-eyed Jack removed.

~ 6 ~

Lunch time
Hungry spider weaves cobweb
Through withered vine.

~ 7 ~

Afternoon stroll
Black cat crossing alley
Stopped. Returned halfway.

~ 8 ~

Peonies
Dreams – under fallen petals
Hide ends Seek…

  4. Like the acknowledgment of the creation cycle in the first. That plays out in the rest and all things. Also the turn in the birth and soul mate one is really cool

  13. Now open is a good name for this series which has reception for many layers of a moment, of a phrase and their replay.
