ellen pratt


loon with its red eyes

peers into the depths in search

of the elusive

living both in and out

can I learn from nature?


wasp walking along the window

its wings erect

begging for a fight

why do I sometimes

take this posture too?


moving in and out of consciousness

one minute

flowing awareness

the next petty and insistent

~uncomfortable growing pains


restless water

churning up the history

of unhappiness

mind trying to make sense

spirit longs for clarity
