In the Winter issue of Orion magazine, Rose Thater Braan-Imai offers “notes on living in kinship with nature”. Each “note” is a treasure.
I offer one.
When the senses are open,
they can freely come to agreement
about what is being perceived, or consensus.
In an experience of harmony
with the natural or temporal order,
can come an experience of certainty,
you can say that you “know”.
That experience, embedded in our cells,
is the memory of that field of harmony that births all life.
To live with time as an ally is to be in harmony with life.
