BEAUTY IN THE UNEXPECTED
Two trees that twist together like a rope.
A hailstorm improvising on the roof.
The glint of sea glass, or the rainbow in
the oily puddle underneath your car.
A bead of scarlet blood, the sidewalk crack
blooming with dandelions, one black swan.
A voice you thought you'd never hear again.
The trash uplifted by a gust of wind.
A cobweb gemmed with frost, the silhouette
of a burning house, red lichen crusted graves.
A wasps' nest swinging like a Chinese lantern.
The kitten's pad across piano keys.
That patch of sunlight on the unswept floor.
Two wheelchair dancers in a Pas de Deux.
