yes, it is like that
when stillness arrives
merging into my trunk
it is like it has found me
it's a joyful reunion
always a surprise!
it can happen stepping into the woods
it can happen sitting on the root above the stream
it can happen in the parking lot or the grocery store
here is where it always happens
we all are this "here"
we are this hereing
this hearing being listening rejoicing
it's a ripple response a ripple effect
tickling the heart awake to each tree each branch
it is how we know we're here.
where ever we are
where ever here is
freed in the stillness, to fly,
one heart to another.
