The Song Of Fragmentation

Picture: African Motives by Lidiia Mishchenko




It takes a bit o’ measure

To stop a second and take

Heed of a kind of leisure

Hid in the scales of the snake.


The snake slides on and on and

Seems to never end; it

Winds, persuasive, ’round the bend,

Clouds flashing all about it.


Yet if one is to be keen

One would surely see beyond

The mesmerizing gleam

Mirrored in scales of diamond.


Big questions serve as bait,

If one refrains from answers.

Listen patiently and wait:

A fragment flips and flitters.


It takes one simple moment

And nothing more than focus.

How frugal is contentment

When time is hocus-pocus?
