between empty stalls and red buckets,
barn cat knowingly sits, as cats always do,
content in what she knows,
and I upon hay bale
with view of winding wooded trials
listen, feel, ponder.
For the moment avoid conclusions -
allow the question of "why"
an opportunity to linger.

The past few days have been rife with the question "Why!! " And lots of people rushing to judgement, accusations, angry talk. Lots of "answers" but ... how much listening? How much are we willing to push aside what we "know" and truly listen to what others have to say? It seems to me, people are more interested in pushing their agendas - getting their way or nothing - instead of reaching a solution to the political and social dilemmas we are facing today.
