heart and mind become one

as the leaf falls
from the tree,
and tumbles
end over end
towards the earth,
I’m reminded,
of love, and
loss, and
all the things
in life we hold close
to heart and wish to
never depart.

yet,
we know all things
are fleeting,
even this feeling
I have, as I’m writing
this poem,
sitting, and
whimsically
staring at the screen,
as one word
appears, and then
another,
and then they disappear
from heart, and
mind, one
after the other,

and then?

another
feeling and
knowing comes,
and heart and mind
become one
.

About

Some see a bent tree,
and they think it’s me. Little
do they know,
there imagining me,
just like in a dream.

You see me,
I see you,
we are all a part of this
Universally
accepted thing.

A collection of parts,
one and all, making up
the entire whole.

Next time you’re
out and about,
and you’re wondering
how it’s all carried out,

remember me,

for I’m a living and breathing
reflection
of the very thing,
you’ve been thinking about.

Tanka #9

ponder existence,
contemplate and meditate
on the nature that
surrounds you, while moving in
the silent dance of intrigue
and one imagination.
