Spring stampede

as rabbits emerge
out of the bushes
on the green meadow
in front of me
because we both do not bother 
each other
we splurge 
ourselves 
while sharing presence

by moving around
on the grass 
and under the bushes
they create naturally 
with their paws 
their own sound
not disturbing the silence

as more rabbits emerge
out of the bushes
on the green meadow
in front of me
because we both do not bother 
each other
we splurge 
ourselves 
while sharing presence
 
their little song changes
in a soft symphony
graced and colored
by their countless embellishments
of the sounds of a soft stampede

I am enchanted 
due to their a-rhythmic sound 
of trampling and rustling 
and their beat of tranquility

    I love that you and the rabbit do not bother each other. By sharing, not invading you both feel the tranquil beat.
