I want to go nowhere

.

I want to go nowhere

there is nowhere I want to go

I am quite happy just where I am

getting to know this place in its splendid complexity

mutating

some travel great distances

feet barely touching ground

never long enough to feel the soil grow between these toes

or recognize the neighbourhood blackbird raising her new family

with the tides

there is so much rushing around

it is time to slow down

to the pace of a tortoise

or a frog hopping along in long wet grass

I am at peace

looking very closely

listening really deeply

opening oneself to the pull and push

of this exquisite world with you
