suchness is my hermitage


milky morning sky breathes the promise of rain
but can’t be trusted

earth, trees, lizards, frogs, toads, billabongs and crusty creeks –
we all wait, thirsting

today, a broken tooth to take to the dentist


suchness is always simple and unadorned
always points to truth – is Truth
always waits in the same place for
the wandering mind to return


suchness is my hermitage in the mountains and my boat on the high seas
