I see the plants blend in odes
amidst mighty mountain stones,
out of the chaos of their form
in low entropy against the sun's

Cascade of winter's brood.
& listen until there's only breath
in the silence of their stealth.
How still they keep, beyond reach,

As if to know, this sound of touch
is where i belong, as only man,
where they are, long before i began.
What matters my perception!

Even as the hoopee's cry
breaks in flight across the sky,
they turn to the life they enfold,
silence, beyond the chaos we behold.

the 'stones' will always survive and here and there we can find the 'human' ones. thanks for sharing.

A bit flawed, but an enchanting piece. I have often hoped to hear the whooping crane's cry at Aransas. But they are very elusive there and I've only seen them once or twice.

Beautiful and so much said/summed up in that last line.
Reviewed by Axilea MU 3/4/2012
Expressive, especially the ending. Chaos, entropy, stones... all highly evocative elements to me.
