Mist and Light

Plein air painting of California poppies on the Big Sur coast of Central Califonria's Monterey County

Mist and Light

When ones and zeroes
No longer add up
And the printing press
Runs out of flesh
And the headlines
Have nowhere to run

We’ll pick up the pieces
Build temples of song
Made of discarded words
Metal vowels and consonants
Foraged from fields
Like seed for migrating birds

And the truth that emerges
Will cut to the bone
Like mist
Like light
Like all that we are
And all that we’ve ever known

-Matt Beard
