Inside the Cracks
Imagine a rock mountainous face
Crevassed, cracked and calcified with Salt.
Steep, standing and breathing.
She is alive, moving - yet apparently solid.
And rain that washes through her cracks
Just as breath washes through our nervous system.
The cracks are exposed - calcification relinquished.
Course patterns wear away to raw exposure
Outlined by lifetimes, ages of wear.
Highways of familiarity now surfacing
Now apparent, potentially raw.
Highways of information processing, habit - behaviour.
Grooves are left for grabbing
Highways for human fingers, scaling the mountainside.
Highways for bugs mosses and wildflowers to flourish.
So we all may ascend together
Using rain and breath to clear the way
Discover the pathway to a vista new.
