Meditation: Dog And Place - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Place is place
without dog,
what lifts spirit
and what lowers it.
With all three
place is crossing place.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

a 'crossing place' is a ford, a tirtha, a potent place that easily, usually, potentially becomes a place of pilgrimage for Hindus.

    Dogged the ford in flood, but flood of dog enthusiasm is greater than any dyslexic dog. (Report) Reply
