Mirrored Forest Ceiling

An awestruck vignette

Dark, still stream leading to pond reflecting bright mosaic of leaves with bridge beam marking midpoint as if horizon.

impulse to move falls spell
at mirrored forest ceiling,
in round warmth of liquid light,
this pocket of atmospheric chiaroscuro
beholds the body a conduit
where blood transcends to rhythm still,
takes mind asylum in-between
and surrenders me unthinkable symmetry
