A Sequence Spoken

A poet is a person who makes snapshots,
moments in a sequence spoken
like the tree falling in the forest:
kinetic images for who would listen.

Judgment has little to do with truth;
merit is wholly subjective.
We align if the music compels
an Aurora Borealis in our heads.

The point: connection to Something Else,
a journey however short or long
from ourselves, through
the Universe, and back.
