Chris Palmer – “Reflections”

September 17, 2010 § Leave a comment

The wide expanse is like a pond of icy glass
I can see the sky’s reflection in the stone
And the trickling ribbons of light are like fingers of newness

As I tilt my head to look sideways, I see symmetry
Lines reflecting lines and clouds that are bookends
With rainbows hiding behind the concrete history

The quiet of the early dawn soothes the soul
And the lone worker seems like poetry in motion
As his left-to-right routine removes the traces of yesterday’s crowds

A person’s work can seem mundane to themselves
But from this perspective it is an act of beauty
His frame upon this street of solitude has become a work of art
