Still a Long Way to Go

Still a Long Way to Go

…I eat…I drink coffee…I sleep…I wake-up…I go to work…yet I am also cantilevered in silence and stillness…in every available moment of clarity and awareness, as I journey…every step a leaf falls…and then I look at that bird…same thing…same flight…same route…a unity of reality…a communion of purpose in existence…I sense the thread that stitches night with day in different patterns…I perceive the architecture of form and the liquidity of substance…that sustains…that relives…and I just journey into the silent land, harnessing the wind, with bones mixing with dreams and a vision reaching out to the horizon…oh! The bird flew away…I need to walk…still a long way to go…

    The bird may fly, the human may walk, but as you so poetically wrote, different forms, One Silence……

    In the wind you fly with the bird to the horizon, in the stillness and silence your soul is nourished, your spirit at home. Eat, drink, sleep, wake, there is the pattern, the routine, there, is order in this chaos, there, we are at home, balanced, on this blessed ground.
