Ref: Genesis Chapters 1-3


This is weird. I know it. After what happened in Chicago and now with Ft. Lauderdale, I'm feeling very fractured and strange/weird. Sorry.



A Fracture Tale of Eden

Watched a spider with red dots on her back

Build her home without measure or hammer or tack

Saw two cardinals doing the tango

Female soft tan, male bright red, a touch of black


Patterns and colors in this world are many

Creatures and the created are palettes of plenty

Designs designed by the Artist of all

Earth, moon, sun, -- galaxies through infinity


Flora and Fauna, fraternal friends, one could say

Born into being and developed along the way

Days, years--thousands, millions, or more

Time certainly passes leaving clue-prints someday


All is beautiful and details are fine and good

The garden is flourishing, blossoming as it should

Some One is missing-- someone new

O the days, of the time, and the tree, and of Man, in the wood





Where is the spider and where are the birds?


They've bombed the garden; haven't you heard?

I think there is no right or normal anymore. Everything is up for grabs, in flux, or simply horrible. Your poem captures this fractured world, but in its despair it gives a way out, of sorts, that Some One who is missing. I think we are left to interpret that, each in our own way, whether it is Some One within, or Some One to lead us in a spiritual way.

I look around and see so much good and love in the world, but the bad is so bad that it's hard to see beyond it.

Powerful Kathy. When these things happen we tend to look back to nature for some rhyme or reason. Patterns occur in nature, science and history. Don't apologize because I understand this and feel with you. You express it wonderfully.
