today

the quartered moon at morn
the morning star at its side
the dog, still a moving shadow-figure along the make-believed woods edge.

as his pant walks before me
the black heaven breathing from above
i realize how enamored I have become with silence,
its presence in the space between footfalls
like a well I step into over and over again

no, not a courage
rather a suspension of doubt that everything which exists –
smells, color, rustles, expectations –
all depend on a rooster doing all it knows how to do

and of course the dog, in his forthrightness,
leading the way toward heaven

    it’s a wonder how today is just about all that is true. Byron Katie drives this thought home.
    wonderful work Ken

    I really like how you described silence “its presence in the space between footfalls” ken, it’s true that silence is a rare commodity these days

    Just before sunrise here and I’m watching the moon with her companion star …… how good it is to hear your words across the ‘universe’, feel the silence of your walk. Good morning, Ken …. here a kookaburra laughing has broken the silence, a nice way to break it :))

    I miss those literal walks, and I am glad you are still taking us on the walks of your spirit and vision.
