A SLOW EVOLUTION

 

A slow evolution
Like our world
Like a year...
Like a day

A life
Revolving forever
Around light
Adopting different forms

Wearing our good deeds
And missteps
On our face
In a slow evolution

Continuous revolutions
Of this planet
And our lives
Hardly ever cease

Though once in a while
Stopped and frozen
In time and space
Beauty and light

In an embrace
Light and beauty
Spilling from within
Everywhere

Brings pause
Words are pushed aside
Into a pile
Before leaning and looking

Long into the mix
Carefully selecting
Only three
To offer on outstretched open palm

“So incredibly beautiful.”
