Gravity

I see you
Seeing me
As she sees me
And he sees someone
No one else sees

And I wonder
What you wonder
About what I wonder
While he wonders
About whom I wonder

All this seeing
And not seeing
All this wondering
About wondering
It all turns
Upon its tail

While all along
The water falls
With a noisy whoosh
The flow always down
Gravity draws all to Earth
Still we are always free
In our myriad ways
To see what we will see
All the while wondering
Just what is up

Solemn Wonders

I share the long, shallow beach
With a few dozen souls
All of a demeanor
In their slow meander
Up and down the shoreline

Hands pocketed
Shoulders hunched
Voices hushed

They’re a beautiful sight
These denizens of stormy weather
There’s a strength
In their solemn wonder

Here where nature runs her course
Indifferent to the human presence
While the humans revel quietly
In hers
