New World, John Lyons (20 x 20 oil on canvas)

New world

Here is a new world
           created by chance
as all worlds are
           depicted on taut hide
the coloured elements
           of a rare earth
scars in the cosmos
           in which it floats
its geometric perfection
           at odds with its universe

to believe that therein
           bees and butterflies exist
and seeds and flowers
           and what when two
people come together
           is known as love

John Lyons
