“Sometimes” Sometimes when things turn upside down And inside out and look dark brown, I rush outdoors and gaze into The topless sky’s eternal blue, So calm and cool, so still and deep, With soft contented clouds like sheep. I shade my eyes and stare and stare, Then go back in the house, and there,…
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
Yesterday I sat beside
a pristine mountain lake
where sky and pines and water
lost their names in Seeing,
where Listening became
a single bird-song, wind song,
To capture nature within a lens,
is to trap it in the space of time.
Presenting beauty at its best,
with gifts that are wholly aligned.

I look towards the silent hills At closing of the day, As vaporous veils of silver mist Descend upon the bay.
