Flash

Today my walking seemed steady enough.
Considering the truth of flash, it’s amazing that anything
can stand.

Sky and Earth flashing in and out of existence
faster than the speed of light makes any concrete
“here and now” truly a miracle.

My mouth and breath are locked and unlocked this way.
The list is never ending. Time and no time together.

When I place the dog dish of food on the kitchen floor…
Miracle of miracles!

The food remains quite nutritious, stays in the dish,
my dog regards me with love; nothing falls into empty space.

Even now as I write, though multiple languages
and non-languages from many lifetimes
come and go, I still can show up, here.

Singing the praises of flash!
Do you hear?

What of this I, this you, who senses
all things everywhere.
