Footprints in the Windsm # 2148

When the stream flows
water takes on oxygen
and the fish live more intensely
This is our conversation
we the fish
the shade the eddies the rocks
the sun the raindrops

Footprints in the Windsm # 2144–Why the clouds exist

Footprints in the Windsm # 2144

Why the words exist

Poem, you pull me in. Here is progression, I am unsure if I have it right. It is from smaller to larger, I think, pulling us out. Is this a function of conversation?

Footprints in the Windsm # 2142–Fishing is conversation

Footprints in the Windsm # 2142

Fishing is conversation between fisher and worm and hook and line, between fish and fisher: a tuggle, a release, a quiet again following. The fish flashing away, heart beating, hiding; the fisher sitting back, taking in the enjoyment, thinking of re-baiting the hook.

Maybe bird talk is the betweens of the notes. Their notes are the canvas from which the silences arise as mountains and river valleys in relief.

Footprints in the Windsm # 2140–Beside a lake

Footprints in the Windsm # 2140

I am wondering about the benefit—and necessity—of a time away from the conversation. Two sleeps, or a sleepover on a mountain or beside a lake. What do we not know of that?

Footprints in the Windsm # 2138–Do I paddle a canoe?

Footprints in the Windsm # 2138

Do I paddle a canoe? In truth it is not something I do to the canoe. More with the canoe. The canoe, the paddle, and I become one. This one carries us. I provide the calories to propel. . .us. I invite another to sit here, too, we paddle in harmony, all still part of one object. I steer and the river steers more. We converse, the stream and two paddlers, several steerers, several minds, struggle or harmony.

Footprints in the Windsm # 2134–A function for the functionless

Footprints in the Windsm # 2134

There is at least in human conversation, a function for the functionless, untidy, things forgotten, things discovered, things held back, things in the dark, secrets and laughs not shared, things repressed. “But above all, develop the human talent for forgetting words, phrases, whole unwelcome sentences, all experiences involving wincing.” Lewis Thomas, Late Night Thoughts on Listening to Mahler’s Ninth Symphony, p 142. “We might, in this way, regain the kind of spontaneity and zest for ideas, things popping into the mind, uncontrollable and ungovernable thoughts, the feel that this notion is somehow connected unaccountably with that one.” Id, p 140.

Footprints in the Windsm # 2132–bathtub sonnets

Footprints in the Windsm # 2132

Are there limits to conversation, to a conversation, which can serve to give it focus and fertility? Orson Welles is reported to have said, “The enemy of art is the absence of limitations.” If we ask a poet to make a poem, she will stare at the page for hours, and not produce a jot. If we ask her to produce a sonnet about bathtubs in 24 hours, she is freed.

Footprints in the Windsm # 2126–The natural caesura

Footprints in the Windsm # 2126

What if, when there is a caesura, we took the clue and stopped talking? Went to writing, drawing, doodling? Meditating or contemplating? Took a walk? Took a nap? Then came back to our conversation? Perhaps the natural break (especially when it feels awkward) is offering us a pause?
