not a pretty picture. not a good. not a bad. picture. but an argument.

a secret mouth

there is this brief opening in time
a secret mouth that breathes and reveals itself
it is but a moment, a beat, so infinitesimally small and discreet
we must pay attention or surely we will believe that we are alone


  1. That's a truly beautiful way of saying a timeless truth, Erin, and the image goes so strikingly along with it.

  2. as the kids pic

    I gotta get-out looking for this...

  3. You do have a way of capturing the elusive.

  4. wonderful

    i was just watching this and marveling and thinking about you and how you understand and, beyond understanding, live this in your life, your flesh and soul:

  5. We could be inhaled and become one with that great body if we weren't already one.

  6. as if the light trembles along the skeleton of the tree and searches for us ...

    it finds you :-)
