Lichen and Words

Lichen, Cascade Mountains, Nicolum Valley, Trans Canada Highway, British Columbia, Canada
With the order
And beauty
Of an insight
Larger than I

The words come
The way lichen
Came to the rock

They come to me
Both words and lichen

So their beauty can be known

And so must I listen
And so must I look

To find the order
Illuminate the beauty
Express the insight

Camera in hand
I look for beauty already composed
Fingers on the keyboard
I listen for words already written
