Undivided Attention

Undivided Attention

Flood of attention to bathe this land
to eddy around the beloved
and all else will be still

The field in the morning
is most beautiful when you look out over it

Make of your mind a tilted bucket
Also tip the field

This is the pre-elegy
As it turns out you and this land share most things


  1. it loves your attention

    gracias for sharing your morning this time

  2. When I look at an open field, it is always the silence of the rock that disturbs my curiosity. Maybe, the field, the rock, the grass's & us---all sing the same story of life & passing. However, something in the last two lines bring me an image of visiting the graveyard. Smiles.
