but there's further to go©papa osmubal

 

lost in the afternoon
iris fan

(we intentionally take the road less traveled by)

walking in banyan woods by the lake
I trace the buttresses to avoid stumbling
meditate on their disappearing into the earth
it’s like facing the dead end in a maze
but there’s further to go

you know that

winter metasequoias standing steady in the water
I wonder at the strength of their trunks below
how firm they must be to resist rotting

after the breeze our reflections together again

but our shadows
later cut by the neon light
merging into the peak hour traffic
