    Water finds its way by falling
    like fruit the ground refuses to swallow
    over shooting the contours of rocks,
    bound to resolve wet grains of stone,
    in the isolation of the world they share.
    Reflecting the falling, beyond asunder
    Like seafoam spewing its frosted envelope
    Brightly over greying cliffs.

    We who are rendered are held together
    by the signs we each leave on one another.
    The rest is the excess that the sun's light
    will take like a sculptor with a white blade
    that sharpens to nothing held by a hand
    dissolved when it has nothing left to hold.

    Time flows because, like water,
    there is unevenness, now
    time sides with water, in light
    of stone: their common enemy.
    But once that conflict's resolved
    it'll be common no more
    turning against water's shore
    for all is time's enemy,
    its tide only temporary.

    If the Sun is beyond looking in
    then i have felt everything
    except the sun, staring in
    and the sun's benevolent face
    was illuminating
    beyond the darkening space
    infinitely narrowing.

    But in flowing where it cannot enter
    and holding the many to their centre,
    time redeems itself, returning all it lead
    back to the love it left in blind symmetry.
    Grace is leaving - in equanimity -
    Time alone to the many; its enemy.

    What an intriguing write. There are a lot of nice concepts here that I like. You write with an abstract bent. What's the title of this piece though? "first post" doesn't seem to give this piece justice. Or am I reading it wrong? IDK...

    The stanza I quoted above made me laugh just a bit - I've been known to look into the sun - it's an interesting experience I wouldn't necessarily recommend to everyone LOL

    Anyway - thanks for sharing your creativity with us and again = Welcome to JPiC. You have posts in your intro thread - feel free to comment them ==> http://jpicforum.info/forum/member-introductions/here-share-6732.html
