    Can I just sit here?
    In this open field?
    Watching the ballet of butterflies
    perform the joyous dance of non-attachment?

    Can I just sit here?
    In the cool green backwoods...
    to learn the lessons
    of unity and diversity?
    The wisdom of an eco-system,
    not from a university,
    but from the canopy of trees?

    Can I just sit here
    At this blue lake?
    To learn the its valuable secrets
    of stillness and motion?
    ..the smooth surface,
    disquising the vital undercurrent...

    Can I just sit here
    and vanish in all denial
    of things electronic?
    without appointments,
    deadlines and expectations?
    Without the pressure
    of counting every **** minute?

    ..to align with a solitude
    of my own design?​

    This is an awesome "stream of consciousness" piece! :great:


    It's got it all: natural and virtual "ancedotes" for one's mind and body yearning to relax....It's a lyrical "Waiting To Exhale."

    Well done. :terrific:

    For me, I'll take a good book, a glass of tea, swinging in a hammock under broad-limbed, leafy trees on a just-right breezy, sunny day.
