Synergy canít help but flow free when nature connects with manís vulnerability. (Image by J Corwin)

Lamplight Visits
by Odin Roark

Staring up from my park bench,
Spartan newspaper-blanket adequate,
you flutter beneath lamp post warmth,
and I envy,
oh, how I envy.

When at midnight,
like every night,
lamp power shuts off,
you drop to my chest.

My eyes follow as you adjust,
my night moth visitation,
if only to shiver beneath my cupped hand.

Our hearts pulsate together,
our insignificance
still a sign of greatness,
our lives triumphant
against a worldís cruelty.

No blind chance this,
me of Pagliacci-tears,
you of a Marceau-powdered face.

Sleeping clowns we,
ready to welcome the nightís calliope of dreams.

Unique the Palkuacci and Marceau tears tare the soul...
heartbeat of nature's in calliope of dreams.
Synergy unfolding.

Park bench philosophy. I like it. Makes me wonder why moths have all that powder on their wings.
