BE11: Here’s Looking at You…

On a short journey to the back of the yard, I happened to met the groundhog
that lives under my shed. Just about ten feet away – I was walking to the creek –
stopped and looked to my right – and there the animal with ever curious eyes
stayed stock still and looked at me. So I engaged in a one sided conversation.
Basically stating the beauty it possessed, that I meant no harm, and could holes
be dug on the other side of the creek. To prove my courtesy, I kept the distance.
Then turned to walk back home. Relief at the disconnect of human contact, the
groundhog then scurried away into the bramble.

Intuition

Whether you call it “a gut feeling,” “flying by the seat of your pants,” or
having spirit guides whisper to you, there is no denying that intuition
should be a part of every decision.

BE4: continent, contentment
(the unpruned version Here )

will clarity come
when there is order in the
garden of one mind?

*
each day a new view
to define just what is a
weed… to pull or not

*
today weeds will be
pulled and the garden trimmed, to
prepare for new growth

Contentment
Contentment in all circumstances is the ideal goal,
But as mortals we must be as content as we can,
Returning to our center as soon as possible when irritations arise.

Enlightenment

Enlightenment comes from understanding the dualities of life;
we are each but a speck in this universe and yet, to each of us,
its center

each other we lose ourselves

Native Wisdom 6

Exactly Different
Two birds from the same nest
Different flights of independence
Though you expect the different roads to merge
Only when it is convenient for you
And then wonder why more distance is created.

I
Have found
My individuality that
You choose to constantly
question

Though
You give no explanations
To your own
Independent road;
Why?

©JP/dh (Free verse, Elfje and Reverse Elfje)

“All birds, even those of the same species, are not alike, and it
Is the same with animals and with human beings. The reason
Wakantanka does not make two birds, or animals, or human beings
exactly alike is because each is placed here by Wakantanka
to be an independent individuality and to rely upon itself.”
