morning meditation

by miriam louisa

luminous eastern rim -
palest cobalt and pearl

shimmering dancing waving
shapes appearing
treeing:
palming, eucalypting, lillypillying
across dawn’s vast canvas

kookaburra cackling at the window:
“tucker! tucker!”
willy wagtail scolding:
“greedy! greedy sod!”
doves nodding their morning mantra:
“isthatso? isthatso?”

Life busies Itself
with the business of living Itself
without rhyme or reason, beginning or end

I, sitting, sees -
and I is It all
and It is I
