The Meniscus

shows the slightest quiver
a broken reflection of outside serene
beyond the windowsill toward all
that was solid in the permanent landscape
transposing to a shiver
an echo of a deeper tremor
exploding to prismatic art
cubism and kinetics colliding
separating hills that step through bush
heights a tangle of green
thick with swoop and fear
and seismic wave to littoral
to sea's restive surface silvery
with undercurrents disturbed and byzantine
