from THE DAYLIGHT SECTIONS (80)

light qualifies light
typifies light
shines

purpose
on paved
habit ways one

salts along the
designated path
finding

mid
flow answers
maybe language or

simply nearby butterflies
to flavor
how

breath
takes in
the elements breath

not exactly lubricates
but sieves
things

now
is all
we say we

have although inexactly
for snapshots
lack

poise
of movement
on a plane

equal to clarity
one looks
from

afar
to know
what is here

    look from afar

    the snapshots:

    lack of poise in answers
    flavor
    how breath takes flavor
    how breath takes all molecules along
    breath takes from afar
    the movement in butterflies
    and

    light shines

    on purpose

    sounds good - so far everything on this blog is daylight - I like the idea of night poems, so perhaps I'll do something and see how you like it! Thanks, Carmen
