a skein of words

one perfect moment — Gotts Island — photo by author

words, such flimsy things,
arrayed, alone on a page,
what can they hold within
the frame of letters and spaces as loose as a net

cast out
not knowing what can be seen through the weave
perhaps they carry some intent or, maybe,
merely sieve the air
