“The Lord is risen. Let us rejoice and be glad.”
“Let there be light.” And there was light.
The light is separate from the light in the sky.
What is that light?
Where do butterflies go when it’s raining?
Flowers are covered with raindrops.
The streets are full of umbrellas.

note: Mrs. Abstract and I with 2 friends toured the Huntington Library near Pasadena,CA. yesterday. The 2 captions are by Octavia E. Butler. She has an exhibit there in her honor.
Two dancers stand opposite each other
And start moving in concentric circles
Lines intersecting in spider web
Writing their own stories in monologues
Speaking to themselves in silence.
I watch their performance
And create my own pantomime
Crying and shouting and standing still.
There are things that seem similar
Maze and labyrinth sound indistinguishable
A parrot can speak on it’s own
An echo can’t.
We can hunt with a spear
Or a bow and arrow
One is easier to learn, the other harder.
Which animal is the first to walk the earth?
Which is the fastest and the weakest?
Shall I feel excited for the answers?
