etude on the day

across a wider range of occurrence
patterns invested within the day
emerge like eddy’s leaf swirl
around trees’ roots trailing
darkly into a silent creek
each moment’s inconsequential
a random turn of light within
yet another moment glimmers
again to become lost in the dazzle
of the sun settling across a lake
those transcendent seconds drift like
butterflies above yarrow’s umbrellas
lost in the slow autumnal collapse
into barren winter’s softer desires
