He gazes out
Beside me

Like myself
In lotus posture

No space
No time
Between us

No difference

On this same

These very
Same birds
Same beasts

No difference

A little concerned
Over distant
Changing tides of political warfare

Keeping in mind
There may be a flood, a fire
An opportunistic neighbor

No difference

Lost loves
Past betrayals

About the welfare
Of loved ones

In the sun
Pouring over this mountain

No difference
No different
No different at all
