Wondering

where has wondering got me
wondering without purpose
wondering with purpose

wandering
wondering

bumping into
ideas
concepts
paradigms
ready to stop now
ready to rest and see how things coalesce
stick to the stick
form and grow

catch on and interact
interrelate
connect
interconnect

weave/
wave
ebb/
flow

re encounter
wonder again
wander again.

Once there was a tin of precious
value lay in other than money
but now
probably because of
I mostly bring too much of me
so there is little or no room
to listen
or learn

never too late to lay it down
let the morning dew
investigate
bring healing
gently coming to terms
happily making agreements
in order to start afresh.


Once there was a tin of money
crawling through the holey stone
struggling (don't laugh)
entering by the narrow gate
go pile it all up
sell the pile
give it the poor
burden them with it
follow me
whoever I am
I am.

Always Chasing -

never still.

What the silence said:

sitting still
the butterfly will come
and land on you

your job
look deeply
sensitise yourself
in order to see
beyond joy and pain
in its landing

how nothing lands
on nothing
or
what lands on what
where

to be aware
through breathing
where you are
in this moment
at this time
in mindful silence

What my heart knows:

Daily practice
roots me
allies me
alloys me
connects me to the river
puts me in the way of
an endless flow of stillness.
