greater than

the shadow this afternoon is beautiful
but it is not the tree

there is no blood
no trembling sweat

fractals are fascinating
but nature is more than pattern
wind more than direction and current

measures less than sea

bees more than sting
bodies more than bones

you can photograph faster than the speed of light
but can you make waves?

something greater
than the sum of parts
and their shadows
this way comes

something eye has neither seen
nor ear has heard
that laughs beyond parsing
and cuts deeper than cancer
whose sign is less than
fate is less than
spirit is freer than imagination
is greater than the image


greater than
