"Just So" - Eugene C. Bianchi





"Just So" - Eugene C. Bianchi

Tall bamboo in afternoon sun
shimmers green and gold.
No plans for tomorrow,
I listen to birds and freeway hum.
Bugs and butterflies visit,
as I watch a squirrel
pitch chestnut pieces
down the steep roof.
No empires to conquer,
no fans to impress,
not anxious about enlightenment,
just here, just now, just so.
