The Dying Tree

October 19, 2009

Just a mental projection
over a physical reality,
what it is to be
no one could ever tell me.
I am living and breathing
blood and flesh,
but I am something more
as well,
terminal, and yet endless.
Forever bound to a dying tree,
I am a leaf
longing for eternity.

The Few Ephemeral Hours

January 22, 2009

The few ephemeral hours
so immeasurably small,
will always be valued
above the eternal.
