5 The Reflecting Pool 1

THE REFLECTING POOL
THE IN-BETWEEN

I enter a room that emanates green light.
A man approaches a pool in a lush forest
and jumps up as if to enter the water.
At the height of his leap, the image freezes.
I sit down and gaze at it.
The figure slowly disintegrates and blends in
with the surrounding greenness.
Other figures and abstract images
also gradually float into and through the image
like corporeal thoughts.
The leaping man and I inhabit
the fertile world that exists
in the space between the passing moments,
in the in-between of time.
