Indeed .. quiet moment!! … “Cool, cool minutes. No one
stirring, no plans. Just being there. This is what the whole thing is about.” … William Stafford, from “Just Thinking” in “Ask Me: 100 Essential Poems of William Stafford” .
Got up on a cool morning. Leaned out a window.
No cloud, no wind. Air that flowers held
for awhile. Some dove somewhere…
count for a lot–peace, you know.
Let the bucket of memory down into the well,
bring it up. Cool, cool minutes. No one
stirring, no plans. Just being there.
This is what the whole thing is about.
