      Orangutan Space…

      Perhaps as another life I was an orangutan,
      for while I may not tangle in the tree tops now…
      from where I sit in the easy-chair under the cave of maples…
      I mingle with emerald leaves,
      dangle in the whispering breeze,
      revel and writhe in the freedom of higher elevations,
      marvel at the blue-dome sky,
      wonder over how I happen to witness the expanse of this experience…
      shedding the captivity of boundaries,
      struggling to get the ‘hang’ of this moment…

      Thoughts flit like butterflies…
      focus splits like a kaleidoscope of patterns…
      ‘here’ dissolves in the treetops,
      and far, far below am ‘I’,
      a gathering entity smoothing out vast moments
      in the pursuit of order…
      yet marveling at the freedom available
      at the fingertips of this openness…
