“between the grains of change

blue permanence…

one short step

to the good ground…”

-May Swenson, “Love Is”


Many people search for

perpetual relationship

like dreaming of

one’s own home:

a place to belong to,

where you can be real-

even surreal-

long as you want to

or for the rest of your

cultured, sheltered life.


But permanence

is only for the brave few

who have dared to cross over

the bridge to enlightenment

after walking – others rampage –

down the intersection

of life and death.


Love’s joy and pain

and confusion evolves

constantly, inevitably…breath-taking

as the deep ocean floor…so blue.
