149. The next turn

Sitting near the river

Sitting near the river

He is sitting in meditation

A bigger friend from many lifetimes

Is sitting with him

It is near the river

And you can see the water flow

Through his body

The mountains are really waves

Of soft energy

Warm in the summer’s afternoon

Taking his heart out with them

To the next turn of the river

It is a wonder

That there is still

Some of him

Here.

148. One

Crossing over

Crossing over

I am coming in carefully

Habituated into making certain movements

Smooth and strong

Listening in the ways that I have learned

Meaning to just cross over

To the other side

But doing this

I have to step on some accepted wisdom

Of the locals

Graceful and wise

They let me pass

Pretending not to pay attention

While they send me a smile

From the corner of their eye

Time passes

With dark nights and windy rains

In spite of being separate

We get wet together

And we realize

That in our separateness

And in the ways that we communicate

We are playing one game

And we are not two

But one.

147. Talking to you now

 

Movements made of mistakes

Movements made of mistakes

It suddenly came to me

To ask the space to talk about what he sees

That happens in it

 

It seems like the most surprising act of circus acrobats

He says

In movements that look as if they are all mistakes

And falling down, attempting some spectacular show

The acrobats manage to put up in the air

A variety of movements

That express running and flying

Longing and trying to hold on

To just anything

Culminating in the unfolding of the sweet unknown

Which, of course, is me, the space

Who is talking to you

Right now.
