poetry

Everything defined by space,
in gestalt, they say figure

-ground reversal, emphasizing
that negative space, sometimes

a new image pops out,
at the loss of the original–

seeing it another way
it cannot be re-seen

.

here the gingko
indifferent sky glimpsed

through scaffolding
at angles, is it contained,

constrained? somehow
the mind says no

.

but what does
the mind know?

a morning breeze
tinged with the sea

lifts all hopes
but sometimes

morning just slumps
into day, nondescript

and non-desired, the background
sets the tone

  1. This resonated with me so much. I’ve been thinking about mornings a lot lately and the impact they can have on the rest of the day and particularly on my mindset.
