Not a leaf's tremble

Not a leaf's tremble

Gaze at an object, one eye open,
the other closed, then switch eyes.

A similar, less than an eye wink,
shift in perspective involving

not a sound nor fragrance,
not a leaf's tremble nor a change of mind

will alter potentially above,
the heavens; the earth below,

yielding a proximate realm
where one's self might be lost;

something palpable to cling to;
odorless to trail, stationary to follow,

wordless to read, thoughtless
to learn and become wise.

A way to choose, abandoning choice,
discernment, autonomy and desire.

O child of God, a way also of just sitting
or engaging in a duel to the death.
