The Divine Artist

The Divine Artist
loves to play with her creations
Her designs are never fixed
not because she is dissatisfied
but because change is her way, her nature

Spend a day by the sea and watch
the wind, the surf, the light, the sand
Turn away one moment and notice
the foot prints
gone without a trace
The tidal pool
rippling and flowing
sparkling with light

I too am a landscape
of rippling tides and changing currents
I am not a fixed identity or role
though I feel it when others
believe this about me

I barely know myself
from one day to the next

The story you tell of me?
Washed away
like seaweed
or a stone
