Little Johnny - Meditating on the Pier


Johnny Adams lived in a time and place more pristine. Sunfish burrowed holes in shallows of sheltered river coves; blue crabs clung low underwater to pier pilings, visible occasionally from above to a watchful eye.

Looking back through a window in time we see Johnny out on the pier watching the resident flock of mallards streaming toward him, then veering to the west into the nook of cove carved eons ago by flooding and tides.

Each day toward sunset the flock converged in this seeming ritual of greeting, before hiding for the night amongst the cattails growing along the river's hidden recess.

This was a quiet time of day when minutes seemed longer, and the sinking sun changed from golden to red leaving a deep blue and purple sky behind; lingering on.

It was the time of day Johnny liked to breathe in the respite of cooler air arriving in little gusts from the east.

It was a perfect time to reflect on the landscape of his day; on his trials and how he'd solved them; on how he'd related with family and friends. It was a time to make plans for the next day's adventures.

And, it was the perfect time to sit quietly, undisturbed; his gentle breaths mimicking the even in and out rhythm of the small waves lapping the shore.

Johnny quieted down in body and mind in nature's stillness, and in the falling rays of light restfully welcomed the enveloping night.
