The Oh of Pleasure
Am hurled into a world
of new meanings as sea
of deepest blue gives birth
to life in brilliant hues
from pale green and yellow
to brightest orange.
Image of man walking alone
across snow-capped mountain,
rattles sense of own small
life, no more than wounded insect
crawling over corner of beige carpet.
Unique music plucks at inner strings
of listener, draws them taut with beauty
of ever-expanding, unknowable
Universe, where stars and planets
are tenderly clenched in arms of gaseous
clouds, same colors as small darting fish.
We are all one in our
oh of pleasure.
Elizabeth Crawford 4/7/14
