A place with more answers than questions
Swim out into the living air between the forest branches,
There is something tangible here.
The air is full, new-made, clean, rich, sweet,
Redolent with the fragrance of eternity, and
Thick with the silence hidden
In a thousand high-low bird notes,
In the kiss-song of cicadas.
You’re flowing through
The openings between things;
That lithe, inquisitive part of you,
Unbound by space or time,
Slips easily into the invitation.
Inhabiting the light space around my body,
Intertwining with the space around each tree, bird, heartbeat, breath,
Dreams a landscape
Where exploration does not end and
Every view is better than the one before and suddenly
These words are hopeless and inadequate;
Silence, like a breathed balm,
Peaces me to stillness.
