All that is
Converges on a single point
Where all that is known and imaginable
Exists in the experience and imagination
Of a single sentience

Earth alone
Is home to billions of such convergences
Leading to this gesture of humility:
How can I know this convergence of mine
Is the best of billions

Or even any good at all

All I know
Of the billions of others
Is at best learned conjecture
Even with the most intimate knowledge
Thus am I both creator and interpreter

Imagination ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #129

In the dimness
I saw a monster on my bed
But just a towel
In a jumble
A child’s mind
Trying to make sense

In reflections
I see a dragon breathing fire
But just a building
With a light on
Like the child
Imagination still at play

Should the day come
When I see only what’s there
No monsters, no dragons
Which I playfully must slay
How sad I will be
In a world so plain and grey

Silhouette ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #123

Three figures teeter on distant rock
Silent silhouettes
Animate without the subtlety of gesture
Barely beings
Tottering along
A knife’s edge horizon

Three lives there
Faceless beneath the clouds
But for outlines
Against the sky

One drops off the world
Lost forever
To anonymity
But for the unnamed character
Forming in the theatre
Of my mind
