Way Finder’s Meander


Way Finder’s Meander, Acrylic on canvas, 28.5×78.5”


What if the fullest way home is best found
while looking around at other things?
Meandering, following a stream.

What if the truest destination is inside this;
in how the everything of your living has come to be met
and rests here, quiet; so that the whispering of leaves together
brings you to a standstill in your own heart?

What if you attended that, even as an aside, while you look
through your eyes at what needs – has, to be done?

What if, without your knowing,
the music of water and leaves
goes home in your soul’s pocket
and tempers the rush in your veins?

What if we met in the field to walk?

Where the limo with the antler mount is parked

I followed, briefly entertaining the idea of trying to catch him

just to see what was in my legs, and his smile.

But a sudden caw-caw-phany

Stopped me in my tracks,

and on he flew away

on his own course.

Here, a murder of crows was talking insistently

in the trees above this sign.

Can you believe it?
