Simplicity / Complexity

Poetry, Vol 6: Iss 1

Simplicity

Swooshing of the birds’ wings overhead

Rooster and chicken figurines on top of the roof’s edge

Stacked round rocks forming the border of the garden

Wooden rope swing I sit in

Small creek bed running under the wooden porch

Grace is a gift from an innocent friend

Certainty that all bleeding stops eventually

Inevitability that death comes to us all

  

Complexity

No linear lines to any buildings

Walkway is consistently uneven

Several outbuildings with no connection

We all fall short of perfect

You can make it as complex as you want until death finds you
