Inspiration piece

Everywhere
is here and there
and nowhere you
can be at once

You must choose
a path—
calendula
scent of the sea

Like those signs
with seven arrows
pointing every
which way

Big town –
Small town –
The moon –

Mountains don’t
move we think
yet they’re changing
every day
so slowly we’re
tricked into
believing permanence

If you lived on a bluff
overlooking the sea
you could watch
storms take shape
and blow toward shore
while rain hit sideways
against the windows

You might call that beauty
Or perhaps you’d turn away
