The infinitely patient universe


Forget the blood bone

invisible heart

and origins of thought.


Let the Mystery be.


Light snow falls and drifts.

Goldfinches dig out the feeder.

Good ol’ universe;


infinitely patient.

  1. Chris, I love how you juxtapose the lovely, delicate words and images with a direct, no-nonsense tone…complex, like the universe. I cannot explain this, but the words that also come to me after rereading this beautiful piece: “a heart beats underneath, deliberate and sure.” Thank you.
