Leisure

Bird chirp, vanguard for coming rain,

Dog bark skitters through twilight village.

Smoke raises a column through pine,

Contented families dine in golden windows.

Life’s pulse is gauged in the hollows, the intervals between events. If you want to see the divine, you must discern these spaces. This requires leisure, the chance to sit and contemplate, and the opportunity to respond to inner urgings.
