Footprints in the Windsm # 2032–We can find each other

Footprints in the Windsm # 2032

The conversation is in finding and receiving the elders of the generations. We can be received, we can receive those we have seen before, we can receive those behind our eyes coming after us. They all can receive us. We can find each other.

So we do not need simultaneous synchronous converse. To grasp the other, to find the other, is sufficient. It is a mystery, it is mystical, yes, and it is within our normal day-to-day ken.

Footprints in the Windsm # 2030–Baby robins in spring-time

Footprints in the Windsm # 2030

Baby robins in spring-time
maple leaves shimmering
the rhythm of life
is a life-giving thing
is the meaning of life
not even a thing
is a dancing, dancing
ever changing up
shows us all there is
just lose yourself in it
you can never be lost in
The rhythm of life

Footprints in the Windsm # 2028–The tracks we make

Footprints in the Windsm # 2028

The tracks we make upon our times
are faint, faint
Did our parents take us to Washington
in 1962 or 1963 or 1964?
There are no longer any records
And who can open those computer files
from a decade ago?

Footprints in the Windsm # 2026–Imperceptibly

Footprints in the Windsm # 2026

The work of this poetry is, by its roots, making, composing, creating, placing together, and so forming, shaping, as the poet shapes words and works them.

We are forming people, working them, molding, shaping. Not as a big potter, but as an flow of water inside, working slowly, kindly, softly, imperceptibly.

imperceptible
the work of ancestors
how could we have a grand design?

Footprints in the Windsm # 2021–Before you help others with theirs

Footprints in the Windsm # 2021

Before you help others with theirs
. . .
Due to dementia
you wrote in your report
she could not or would not
follow therapy directions
But your covid mask covered your lips
and her hearing aids were broken
So you without ill intent missed reality
and did her an injustice
in life as in therapy
. . .
Take off your own mask first

Footprints in the Windsm # 2017–hairless exposed

Footprints in the Windsm # 2017

Perhaps, just perhaps
as we age
as abilities leave us
as people leave us
some of us could uncover
the meat of us
perhaps, just perhaps
our purpose is to
unlearn
to become hairless
exposed animals
we are at base
perhaps, just perhaps

Footprints in the Windsm # 2013

The mirror

We honor so few generations
of ancestors before us
that it limits our
imagination
of the ones coming after us

how distant the echoes we hear
limits
how long ours are heard

Footprints in the Windsm # 2009–Ancestors to one another

Footprints in the Windsm # 2009

What if ancestors were not ahead of you in line (nor behind you in something some call “time”) but were all around you, all about you, sustaining you as you sustain them? You may get your hazel eyes from your father, your gait from your mother, and your grey hair from your children, but you get your bread from the bread delivery guy, and the farmer, and the wheat plants, and the bee, and the microbial animals, and that star above. We are ancestors to one another.
