Listen to This Stillness Moving

Listen, Listen to this Stillness

moving as the Silent Wind through Mind

-the Mind of all creation – 

Image result for IMAGES TINY PURPLE FLOWER

blowing as the glistening brook,
the salamander struggling up a wet incline of leaves,
a tiny purple flower offered to the Buddha,
joyful wind chimes jingling,
scampering squirrels and squawking jays,
preening peacocks and balls of furry cats,
this statue of dear Lama Yeshe
that came to life one day and spoke
these words inside my heart:
“Never read yesterday’s news.”

This Silent Wind blows as the innocence of minds
that fear a war that’s neither here nor there
yet stirs the bubbling pot of God’s vast
soup of energies that cast this world
into endless Dream creations.
Listen ! Listen to this Silence
moving as this moment’s Being –
loving a thumb that rests on a book,
uncomplaining iris beaten down by a storm,
a tiny spider crawling on my face,
and white worms wiggling in the mud
beneath the blessed gaze of Tara.
Listen ! Listen to this Stillness moving !

Dorothy Hunt
