Listen , watch and learn......... poem

Updated on March 30, 2014
Spring is almost here
Spring is almost here

You don't have to believe this
can just watch it happen too
The magic of night works on its own
and all magic follows through

In the moonlight the blades of grass
follow the path of the moon
The leaves turn in and watch
even the river
can dance and swoon

As the animals of the forest awaken
to the excitement of the night
Where the darkness doesn't matter
nor do any feel one fright

Things happen that deny and defy
all explanation
But that's just the ways of the night
nights of elation

I learned much sitting there and
watching below eternal constellations
Yet the single most important was that
I am no one ...but one small part of
these equations

One humble man with no say
yet two eyes to observe
And humility well earned if not
just what I deserve

Close your eyes and listen as
darkness meets time
As all things come together
one moment
one night
one mind

      Eric , for some of us peace or living peacefully in the moment is paramount to living itself , for some its socializing , or sex, or politics. but I guess living in a vacuum away from all other human life is close too ! Well said , I had not thought of it that way before ! I do zone out in natures surroundings when I can though !..:-}

      I no longer see the difference, but people seem to need to point it out to me. The oneness thing seems to need to live in a vacuum.
