Wonderfully Absorbed in a Moment of What is

Wonderfully Absorbed in a Moment of What is

…a first morning…my contemplative morning walk…again I am wordless as I witness the utter simplicity and muteness of the moment…my eyes wander…my mind wonders…peaceful beauty…I enter and surrender deeply to this “Haiku moment”…and I remember this profound line from one of Thomas Merton’s writings: “The tranquility of eternity.”…I love and relish that thought…and I see those two trees…and the snowy ground…in a new light in black & white…there is a touch of Zen…I feel like everything is participating and conspiring in the silent beauty and wholeness of the moment…and all I have to do is humbly submit to whatever is happening…because there is the mystery…there is healing…there is wisdom…there is a gift…

(*i saw a sense of Zen in the image of the two trees and the snowy ground in the front yard of an old church along Sherbourne St., Toronto, Ontario and i took the shot)
