breathe & be

..
..sierra nevada

today I have nothing to do 
but breathe and be 

it’s the way it is with you: subterfuge
leaves the building, windows ajar,
doors too, breeze
comes through clean as a whistle

floorboards to lid, wall to wall
dustless baseboards
nothing covered
nothing hid

our life plays without script,
unfolding as it is, prairie
wide
sierra high

miles off each peak clear
without mist, without
mendacious atmosphere

…… a veritas fest!

with you the jangled stuff
that sets the world on edge
has come to rest
