(v.) to gaze into the distance
without thinking or doing anything

During the warmer months, sitting on the porch listening to song birds in the maples, same waves of wind, mountainous clouds. In winter, watching snowfall contour the landscape, later that night from the kitchen window, blue moonlight, the silent stretch of the tulip tree in the front yard, its earthen shadow humming with sighs and laughter.
