Shaking Lightly



a little breeze comes through

and the textile waves a bit


like a leaf

hanging on a tree

in the wind


up and down

the leaf

up and down and around a bit

a little different from the

up and down of the branch


what is that beat?


that beat of the leaf?


that, my friends, is the beat of life

the little random signal

at the heart of everything


up down up up down up down up up down down


that pace

that cadence

that never repeating

that no pace or cadence

that strange attractor

that tiny fractal movement that has the same shape as the

movement of the man

the movement of the country

the movement of history

the movement of geology


you, me and the rocks
