Ensemble

Slow and meticulous yet all encompassing
The rays of sun, the spreading moon beam,

… Not struggle in vain, not scrambling for resources.

That’s not all the way you think, you pause,
Believe in this beautiful fragility of the world
Slowly you have the feeling to do something.

A mix of compassion and detachment,
It’s deliberate; it gives you a sense of urgency,
A crisp summary of your pain and anguish.

You don’t need to evaluate the small print
The opinion, the impression, the judgement,
A broody dark contoured face finds you inside.

Sweeping sea views and wide sandy seashore
Pristine bush land goes far behind the scene,
It’s all there in real terms to be felt, to be seen.

What if the door get slammed in your face again?
Experience the reality, the upside of anxiety.

You think of infinity and beyond, an eternal ensemble.
