Night Walk Arithmetic




Four dog paws

Two human feet

Two hearts

One head lamp

One glow collar

One moon

Three hills to the empty-of-houses lot above the river


Four hundred forty-four miles

Eighteen million gallons per minute of freshwater

Three hundred million years

Flowing

Pouring

Reflecting


Silent

Sentient

Living waters


More ancient than the Nile

Older than the Appalachian Mountains.


Tonight

Inviting

Orion

Big Dipper

Stars

Moon

Milky Way

Universes

Yeshe

Me

You

Into the flow.



Yeshe- whose name is Wisdom- stops and looks into the night

We stand, eyes drawn to the dark pooling in the field

My headlamp flashes on glowing eyes

Red Fox

Rabbit

Whitetail Deer

Hers


Enthralled

Coaxed by cohesion

Bright-star-eyes dance with

Hydrogen

Oxygen

Carbon

Parts per million pouring

Through our bodies,

Through the field of stars

Over railroad tracks

Down the bank

Joining

Returning to the

Ancient

Always

Flow

Of


One.
