Brand new day
It's the morning of a brand new day, week, summer.
I heard loons in the night and now
Dabbling ducklings, two sets, float by with their stately Mamas.
My God, the fluffy, bathing, dipping joy of an early morning duck family.
Noticing fog on the mountains, then gone.
Noticing seagull screeches and throaty crows croaking.
Noticing glittery sparkles of sun
Tap, tap, tapping leaves over head - a cottonwood?
Favorite trees from a decade ago, now I know your name, Ironwood
Bright colors I wear
The quality of my mind body, breath body, physical body
Expanding out into the glorious energy of this Place.
Silver Bay's energy is grounded, here, knowing its place. It draws people to it with its radiance and keeps them coming back again and again. It is temporary, but enduring. Is it the lake? The contours of the shoreline, the mountains beyond. The specks of clouds dotting this horizon. A glimpse of beyond, of spirit untethered? I can only sense it, not just within me, but all around me. Pure beauty and peace is here. I am just a witness.
