Dawn I Caught You
Dawn this morning
I did it
~~What Is There Beyond Knowing~~
What is there beyond knowing that keeps calling to me?
I can't turn in any direction but it's there.
Time that is always rushing forward or standing still
in the same -- what shall I say moment.
What I know I could put into a pack.
Important and honorable, but so small.
While everything else continues, unexplained.
But mostly I just stand in the dark field,
in the middle of the world, breathing in and out.
Life so far doesn't have any other name
but breath and light, wind and rain.
If there's a temple, I haven't found it yet.
I simply go on drifting, in the heaven of the grass
and the weeds....
Words in part from ~~~Mary Oliver~~
