I have learned to be an observer.
I pause and examine things closely.
This pond looks empty at first glance.
The noisy nights have let me know that things are happening.
I pause and ponder and bend down to look into the empty pond.
The green water is dotted with specks.
Some specks have heads and tails.
There is wiggling and swimming going on in that empty pond.
It is teeming with life.
Watch it. Wait for it. Let it be and see what evolves.
Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
