The Circle

Thursday Trail

Remember this always:

The Circle must close.

It is true for us all.

It is simply so.

Ambassador

Perhaps there should be Nobel Prizes for non-humans.

In the park, people walking dogs are met with smiles, greetings, “Hello”s in soft, charming tones.

People meeting people without dogs are silent, averting their gaze, heads down, staring blankly forward.

If we could all go around with a dog at our knee, we’d be greeted with smiles and courtesies always.

Perhaps every member of the United Nations should be required to bring their dog to every meeting of the Council.

I think if everyone on the planet walked about with a dog in tow, we’d have a world of sweet “Well Hello There”s.

Perhaps we could, indeed, achieve world peace.

 

Seek peace,

Leap

The Thinker

The Thinker

If you think it may be

Too Far or

Too High,

Consider jumping anyway.

Suppose you make it?

Parting

Shadows Walk

Shadows Walk

Now you have fallen motionless, and will walk with me no more.

Yet around me, our world is still full and moving.

Birds fly and sing, clouds pass by, rivers flow.

Our time together on the green globe is arrested, but in my heart and mind I see you,

I hear you,

I reach out for you.

Let’s walk on,

As if nothing has changed.

Fear

Let's Go!

Let’s Go!

 

People are afraid of everything.

Afraid of the heat, the sun.

Afraid of cold, afraid of snow, afraid of the dark.

Perhaps what they should really fear is the fact that they are

Missing out on everything,

Locked in their

Big People Houses.

Come out. Let’s walk!

Mutual

Let those who love you

Faun over you,

Shower you with their affections.

Drink it in, and

Bring joy to both.

Tempo

Wonder Walk

Wonder Walk

I curse myself for

Racing through this

Walk of Life.

Slow down. Stop. Look.
