Quiet’s Event

                                I

The mountains slowly emerge

out of mist and cloud

This is the epitome of quiet’s event

when the sun warm and filled with

distant barking of dogs

rises inevitably into the mind

rises into the world

and exists beyond abstraction

beyond any attempt to ignore

its objective presence, so that we feel

eternally alive.

But beneath the trees of the forest

the shadow is darker than the dim hue

of the mountains which too are shadowed in parenthesis….
