Colleen O’Donnell during her exhibition at Cerulean Arts Nature's Timepieces 
“It is not down in any map. True places never are.”
Herman Melville 

Herman Melville’s Arrowhead – 
Wissahickon Creek, Pennsylvania – 
Rouffignac Cave, France – 

 Attempting to make permanent my moment here 
I put a stone in my pocket 

Ossified wood remembers her curves 
A relic of womanhood carried on through time 

Waves etch themselves into the substance of shells 
lulling me into a glimpse of the eternal 

Nature’s timepieces.  
I’m a fraction of a moment here – 
connecting with you 
Fleeting but beautiful.
