Just This Morning

Our steps along this section of boardwalk have led us here again.

The rocking chairs are motionless until they hold a body or catch a breeze.

The thatch above is fragrant. Reeds bend to the wind.

We have added nothing but our presence for a short time, and when we are done rocking, all will be as if we’d never been here.

So too the earth, before and after humans.

  1. Sounds like Grassy Waters! Best to you both as our sun turns a warmer face toward us, and a new era begins!

  2. Oh, Marika – So very powerful – among your best.  Though – I believe we leave “trace elements” of our being – our love, our caring – we do leave an imprint.  I am sure you do; and, I am trying very hard to leave something that lasts.  Who knows – which is the question – all we can do is be awake to the world around us. Thank you for being you.  

  3. This is just beautiful. If my experience is any measure though, I think we leave much behind, in fact I think we go on living invisibly for most of those who knew us then we begin to fade – but it takes a long time….fortunately, in that state, we don’t add to overcrowding of the planet …..hugs, you’re just so good at this writing thing!
