Convergence

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

Mass ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #221

Heavier even than Earth
Yet I soar
A majestic dirigible

Laden with history
And regrets
Lofted by hope
And purpose
Levied by love
And compassion

Most days I carry the weight
Lightly, aloft
Some days I cannot leave the berth
Tethered, grounded

So I touch the Earth
Am grateful for its stability
That I always have a place to land
Rest, and free myself of burdens

Then breathe deeply
Filled and empty
I take to the skies again

Locals and Tourists

On a cold blustery morning
After the night of hard rains
Dimpled the sands
The sky spatters still

A couple dares the ocean
To douse their sneakers
Which it will no doubt oblige

Her morning walks allow no thought
For the outcomes of such imprudent wagers

Just the waves the sand and the wind

Now on the homeward leg to shower and eat
Then off to work six days a week

At the cafe with its cliches and charm
Where she serves many a breakfast
To tourists and their soggy feet
