Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as bird wings. – Rumi

the scientific approach

Like falling backwards into space

A mixture of liquid and magnet
that must work to stay contained
as though the fibers could stretch and pull
and become separated

The heart presses itself
and reaches

The sound alone is distracting

The movements stay connected and familiar

There are no words
and the resistance ancient

thank you for reminding me
that trust
most important!

Just like
Blue and Green
and funny.
