Standing in the stream ...



Into the mountains ...


standing in this stream, playing in the water

watching this liquid-bright sparkle over rocks,

eddies and pulses

rushing to arrive somewhere along the way

keen to share in abundant exuberance

fermenting all around


mellifluous elan vital


watery vitality

chilling my feet and legs

vim and pop

cupping my hands, washing, wetting, christening my head


into such exhilaration and joy


tapping into the uproarious joy of the rocks, moss, trees, grass and river


shaking, singing, swaying, bubbling, being … their song to their Beloved.

My Beloved.


never to forget this. so warm.

the sun shining and all nature gloriously happy

including this human being-nature,

sharing their bounteous delight.


THIS the transcendent Divine - immanence!

Our natural inheritance.
