Wide as Sunshine

A step outside of thought

and I return in

to the unknown.

To the cold,

dark waters

of early Spring,


Where attention

gives us

each to receive.


Before discernment there was wonder.

Within the silence

there is song.

All around

the frogs

are chirping,

A soft red


the branches,

And with eyes

as wide as sunshine,

I return to nothing.
