Dancing a circle

You were taught about attentiveness,

awareness for details to the smallest degree.

Sometimes awareness view shadows

to define light, and light

to express darkness,

a new way of looking, blackbirds 

emerging through the mist.

 

Sometimes you have to close your eyes

to increase symmetry of seeing.

 

To catch the swirl

you have to ride the currents

white water utterings  

a long frightening sentence 

surrendering to calm and awe downstream.

 

Before you sit on the table

you wash your hands, hot

and cold, water blending,  

like children holding hands

dancing a circle.
