Thanks and Praise

Carlotta, Ca 2004

There’s an ancient humble comfort, simply watching
the immensity of clear white light pouring down
in gracious mountain harmony, filtering through
these majestic old growth redwood trees, pure awe
expressed as a gentle pendulum of soulful sighs
and glad hummings in uncontrived surrender
to the mystery woo of the wandering wind,
the moo of the cow standing still in its field,
hark of a distant barking dog, the sudden flight
of feisty mountain bluejays, and now this:

an impossible full moon slowly peeking around
the bend in the hills, milky white on cobalt blue,
and the pendulum stops in the midst of its track,
its track across time, then the sudden sensation
of cessation, cessation of any motion, both past
and future liberated from any fabricated necessity,
all creation itself resolving in the same smile,
this one, the enduring smile of our original face,
open, welcoming, gratefully praising . . . all of it.
