By Katje Kaase

Life patterns in a border,

Deliberate and conscious

But free and flowing,

Like the flutter of a curtain

As the breeze breathes,

The mind sleeps

And a dream begins.

Calm creativity in a form,

Soothing tangled lines

And twisted time

While details dance

In syncopated rhyme.

Heartbeats of the pen

In waltzing zen.
