Footprints in the Windsm # 1891–Intimate now this mist

Footprints in the Windsm # 1891

This fog envelops me
Why won’t you let me see?
Did you descend a cloud from sky?
Or rise from pond and saturated earth
And stillness in the wind?
Or from the breath of people round?
It matters not: my vision’s circumscribed!
I start to see the little things
Closer, larger, larger
My contending begins abating
Softness rolling in or out, down or up
It matters not: intimate now this mist
And I contented turn toward home

Footprints in the Windsm # 1890

When you meet, shake hands,

there is an infinity inside
each
& a larger one inside
together
see this & touch

Footprints in the Windsm # 1882–They flit they float

Footprints in the Windsm # 1882

They flit they float sometimes they meet sometimes they swirl around one another in a dance up up. Butterflies gather nectar and pollen they share around they are blown and tossed they travel unexpectedly fast and far. They sit and sun themselves looking beautiful but not so beautiful just out of the chrysalis. Unheard unattended except by those listening on their frequency. See. Each person a mariposa.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1881–Make anyone a foreigner

Footprints in the Windsm # 1881

It is a mistake to make anyone a foreigner, whether to our table, our ideology, or our humanity. All are as we are, and we might in some times be as others now are. All we are is human. That is our calling, the highest.

Let us remind us of ourselves
We are here
We can hear
This essence
Beneath the hurly-burly
Beneath the jittery
Things we must get done
Here
Here are we
Ourselves
We have worth
Just as we are here
Put again mind
And Heart
To—as we are—
Ourselves
It is this covered-over
Essence of us
Individually and together
Which Life itself
Demands of us
Uncover!

Footprints in the Windsm # 1875–Why 300 years?

Footprints in the Windsm # 1875

Why 300 years? Because it lifts our sights beyond those with whom we are able to talk. Because those in 300 years are close enough we can imagine them, but far enough away we are forced to think longer, in terms of lineages and species. Because we need to raise our sights beyond the quick fix. Because we are forced to ask what is best for humanity and maybe even life itself. Because it requires us to ask, How does what I do and who I am today have effects beyond me? Can we improve humanity, just a little?

Footprints in the Windsm # 1873–Expect from hearer

Footprints in the Windsm # 1873

Telling our story one to another we expect something from teller, from hearer. What? It is precisely this turning to one another, this expectation. When we are heard we receive. We receive when we are received. This flow between us says to each and to group, you matter. Intuitively we know: in this flow we become more whole. Here is a clue to the something of all meeting, whether conversation or story or dance.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1871

Stretch enjoyably
and immediately after your muscles are

Exhausting effort-filled day
so tired you sit almost asleep
a special meditation
In prayer without words
without images
attention beyond attention
These the times
These the communion
