The View From Here

I have been here before,

I know lots of people.


I had more interest and connection with the trees  at this outdoor fair

than with so many people looking out to satisfy the insatiable within

Everyone’s self interest

got in the way

of their ability

to connect .


I ,too, could

only see my end goal .

Before I too

judged the worth of my day by the

what  i could buy or sell


today  i was lost in the wonderment

of living things moving about

animals, people, plants, insects, minerals,

sunshine altogehter in the same space

breathing together

making life happen

influencing each other.

i only felt to be still

in all of this,

wanting nothing ,

simply being a part of it

breathing with it .

grateful .
