I’ve seen coyotes wondering by.
I’ve seen the sun hiding
Just over the ridge,
The morning shadows
Beginning to move
Across the rolling hills —
So peaceful, so quite.

“There are many people writing songs. That is absolutely wonderful.
Who knows, there may be some kid in diapers and he or she might succeed
in capturing in a few dozen words what great writers have spent years trying to say.
Just the right word in the right place with the right melody behind it and the right rhythm.
It might get around the world inch by inch, and people realize that this world is in danger,
that we’re in danger. That’s the way “This Land Is Your Land” got to be so well known.”

— Pete Seeger

Today I thought of monsoon skies,
with big puffs of white cotton
gaining height in the midday blue.

Today I thought about the rain,
falling on the mountains
soaking nature’s soul.

Today I thought about raindrops
leaving prints on everything they touch,
congregating down the mountain streams.

Today I thought of my print
walking with nature
aligned with its very being,

my being communicating with its soul,
entering into a dynamic creative flow
experiencing nature’s bonding reality,

connecting all things in a meaningful whole
through which an allowance, a trust,
opens the vessels of my very being,

allowing my snapshots to profile nature’s
abundance of comfort and wealth,
in the horn of plenty on life’s table

where each moment captured becomes
a reminder that “life is just a leap of faith —
so spread your arms and hold your breath . . .”

Today I thought . . .

“When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You’re too this, or I’m too this.’ That judging mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.”

– Ram Dass
