Anyone who thinks
fallen leaves are dead
has never watched them
dance in the wind.
opening to the mind’s wanderings….
inquiry for today~ why now and how can I know what I know?
May you know that absence is alive with hidden presence,
that nothing is ever lost or forgotten.
May the absences in your life grow full of eternal echo.
May you sense around you the secret
Elsewhere where the presences that have left you dwell.
