the soft touch

In a private collection

sold through Edgewater Gallery on the Green

We shape our self
to fit this world
and by the world
are shaped again.
The visible
and the invisible
working together
in common cause
to produce
the miraculous

I am thinking of the way
the intangible air
passing round a curved wing
easily holds our weight

So may we, in this life, trust
to those elements
we have yet to see or imagine
and look for the true shape
of our own self
in the great intangibles
about us.
