The Good by Ms. Lennan for May 16th

The Good

 

Translucent

as a dragonfly’s wings

tiny veins

electricity wrapped

& branched by design

reaches out into the open air

 

our flight is so light

like breathing

or

walking around

in a womb

encapsulated

insulated

 

to float on

scales on loan

lessons learned from the fish

they let it all slide

and slip

 

arrange them all like petals

around a center

big and bright and full

as a landing pad

for the bee, never frightened

is the brave sunflower

 

in the background

angry abandoned buildings

graffiti themselves

& throw rocks

at their own architecture

 

remains, shards of clear vision

copper wire stolen 

eyes to the homeless

a broken down canvas –

used but so much more

 

resilient

birds fly in and nest

stand and never

give up

 

A brick of good

A brick of good

 

eventually builds a temple

 

No matter what

you do

everyone can see

through
