The Sky is a Painting

The Mind is a Mirror

Reality whirls with images

Dancing shadows of sound and color

Shaping the illusion of separations

Like shattered glass

Carving out concepts

Flung upon the mirror’s surface

Reflecting back on the self

Veiling its true nature

Ancient Observer


This ancient observer
Mute and steadfast
Floating high above the horizon
Circling the firmament
For billions of years

Watching the dinosaurs fall silent beneath a cloud of ash
Watching civilizations spring out of open fields and spill across vast oceans
Watching the bones of those we love sink back into the Earth

Apathetic to our own toils
Indifferent to our own queries
To our universal questions of meaning and purpose
Pulled to the surface under a canopy of distant stars

Questions unanswered by this mute and steadfast witness
This silent companion of our home planet
Suspended in a peaceful tapestry
High above the horizon
