A Thousand Stories On

A poem.


We play with the dog on the floor

and laugh and lean into each other

and your eyes which I know so well

stop me. We talk some more, taking

off the day before our clothes. Holding

you lightly as the wind dies down makes

me believe that intimacy is the silk of the

world. The rest of the night is one long

kiss, as is this life. In a while you will

sleep. Tomorrow, the sun will curl up

the mailbox and skip to the top of the

maple. Like two cut flowers adrift in

the sea, how did we find each other?

This excerpt is from my book, The Way Under The Way: The Place of True Meeting (Sounds True, 2016).

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
