Evanescent

This word has
the specific gravity
of smoke.
Fragile as a doe, frail as
the dreams of a hummingbird,
keeping this word
on a page is a task
worthy of Sisyphus.


Sly, slippery, and cunning,
nailing mercury to a wall
is easier. So is making
a statue out of shadows.

David this entire series of word explorations is so much fun to read. I won't annoy with comments on each but know I am reading and enjoying them all.
