The Wardrobe’s Best Dressed: Being Many Seeds by Marilyn McCabe

This selection, chosen by Managing Editor Krista Cox, is from Being Many Seeds by Marilyn McCabe, released by Grayson Books in 2020.
A young man in black pedals a black bike holds
a black umbrella light rain plunks everything
greening around him and pink
magnolia lets loose a petal high
crow transects his route the pedaler
glimpsing it all upside down in puddle
even as he rolls away



                                                    in puddle
                    rolls away




Teilhard believed that a system cannot be understood outside of time: all things are in process; nothing is static. We each are systems in the process of becoming, even as we are part of a large system which is also unfolding.
