Drifting Thoughts

Outside it is luminous…and humid…I see a solitary bird, gliding…the street is almost deserted…the summer wind plays…the leaves and the grass and the flowers play along…three people congregate under the shade of an old maple tree…and there is peace…this I desire…and deep understanding…the coffee shop is half-full…my cup is empty of green tea…and my thoughts drift…somewhere…further within…it is an inner silence…an inner journey…to an inner part of the universe…

  1. I love the phrase ‘an inner part of the universe’ . We don’t often think of our minds like that. Insightful!

    Hello my friend … I wandered by yesterday and saw you walking away through the park … too far ahead to hear me call out a greeting. I’ve found my own coffee shop now…a quiet one where I can either work or just sit. At times, I’ve thought of you. So glad to see you here this morning!

    The peace and deep understanding of an expansive inner universe, yes, I can feel this in your dialogue here.
