Don Kuhn

We met at the corner

and Don said “let’s go this way” –

on the labyrinth walk

Don mastered measured response.

 

Our paths crisscrossed often

often when I reversed course –

calm in adversity

Don had been there and done that.

 

In the labyrinth, the way

is clear and undefined –

a careful companion

Don was prepared to help.

 

We don’t know, what we don’t know

but we have-to move on –

a practiced gardener

Don cultivated oneness.

 

To get to the center

requires my persistence –

an accomplished artist

Don fostered my insight.

 

The zone is transient

and the walk continues –

objectively loyal

Don listened and affirmed.

 

I give thanks for Don’s presence

in making labyrinth turns,

which need a metanoia –

Don made a difference.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
