a walking meditation

as i parked my car

two Canadian Geese strolled across the street,

onto the sidewalk

and continued walking down the road….

later, as i was once again driving,

while stopped at a light,

another pair

strolled together on another sidewalk….

and as the sun was setting,

and i was once again exiting my vehicle –

a solo goose,

stood

still,

watching,

and they have been walking through my meditation as i try to sit still….

but oh, the stories that come spinning!

and after i painted, i realized that i could create even more depending on what order i placed the pictures into.  We are such a storytelling animal!  but sometimes, it gets the better of us….

rather than impose a narrative – i posed a question instead –

Why are you all walking when you can fly?

and the only answer was the echoing of the same question in my heart.

Follow your path, by foot or by feather.
