Being alone being together

by Joan Whitaker

Sitting alone under a tree
Wandering off
Re-collecting
Coming back to
Sitting alone
under a tree
in the mountain
Breathing
with the brilliant sun warming
and the wind blowing and beating
and the vast blue sky
inspiring and uplifting.

Sitting alone
Under a tree
Wandering off
Re-collecting
Coming back to
Sitting alone
Under the trees
In the mountains
Breathing
With you
With each of you
Thinking
Feeling
Seeing
Hearing
Touching
Moving
Sighing
Laughing
Crying
Clearing
Being human together
Being in love together
Breathing together
Feeling together
Living together
Aging together
And dying alone together
In love
Under the trees
In the mountains
With you
With each of you.
