The portal pothole (Photo by: Reece Burka)
The pothole was just a pothole
on a dirt road until the rain came
and the pothole became a puddle.
The puddle became more than
a puddle when it was photographed
and appeared as a miniature pond.
The pond reflected the tops of trees
all pointing to its center and
turned its surface into a portal.
At the center of the portal lay
a small white rock that created
an illusion of indeterminate depth…
All of which combined to
create a metaphor for
the source of all things.
