the whole world in meditation

21 Oct

i looked up which is not something i always do
and there they were,
21 pigeons across a telephone wire
heads tucked into their bodies,
perfectly still and silent,
i looked down and
there it was,
a worm squirming its way through blades of wet grass,
then a crossing guard waving his hands,
a dog’s nose in quivering madness,
me counting pigeons docked on a wire,
the earth spinning
planets spinning
everything and everyone spinning,
in perfect meditation.

    I’m going to write a poem with the word ‘catenary’ in it.
