Only When Provoked

the enso

A carp swims underwater by a water lily pad in a pond

"The Depths" by marlowe

the poem

I imagine you sit
at the bottom of the pond,
resurfacing like a ghost,
like an old memory,
only after
some provocation, your mouth
gaping in disbelief
at your fortune, this
in your muddy microcosm
that prompts
requires further inquiry
that perhaps sparks
an instinct you
didn’t know you had,
the lily pad
your marker, your trigger
next time someone
walks too close
or dares to perch by the bank,
looking for something you
cannot give.

Ode to Tinker Bell

the enso

A blue dragonfly landed on a marsh plant on the bank of a pond.

"Dragonfly IV" by Mark Hiebert

the poem

What if we lived our lives like Tinker Bell?
What if we chose to spread our magic fairy dust
with each flick of the wrist, each wishful thought, each blink
of an eye? What if we applied these confetti sprinkles of light
to any moment or encounter, twinkling like stars
whose brilliance shines even when no one looks at the sky?
What if all we left behind were dust balls of love?
What if these flights were unlimited
by space or time? What if we could transform every thing
by simply blessing it, the cascading starbursts of acceptance
opening all boundaries to knowing
our true being?
