an examined life

Dragonfly dozing
on a lily pad
a dab of paint.
Did Monet paint
absence of the dragonfly
or imagine its presence?
 
What if Van Gogh saw fireflies
when he was convalescing
at St. Remy-de Provence?
 
Thoughts come 
fleeting lights and mist
starry skies.
 
Visiting Tuesday’s Farmer’s Market
I walk between tables
fresh spinach and sunflowers
 
strawberries and self-embroidered scarves
I think of the life I’m living
or an imagined life.
