half of an amateur meditation tanka

sometimes notice it —
this, that, the other that’s there
and with that enter —
this pen, that book, the light’s gesture . . .

what if chat is our destination?
what if there is no Final Destination?
that franchised certainty of death
as full stop only a deflection

what if the destination is with us now
all along a deep heart hum
hidden beneath our noses
if we listen, feel the sun

the sunlit moments pass
then and then again
i came to speak of breath
returned in a garden
yet the sunlit moments pass
even pleasantry deflection
from the task
first, not to mask
then dare divine
now, on this garden path
true heart’s reflection
