camper’s koan

Picture writing prompt.

camper’s koan

who am i?

am i the wind’s

caress upon

a tired chin,

a blood vessel’s

thumping

or something therein?

i am not i

i am no

body,

no shirt

no underwear

no jacket

no sneakers

no gloves

no hands

no hair

no fingernalis

no eyeballs

no earlobe

no pretzels

no shelter

no trees

no ground

no earth

no mind

no self

no past

no yesterday

no tomorrow

no ice cream

no pleasure

no pain

no bracelet

no compass

no home

no north

no howling

no yellow eyes gazing

no claws

no broken branches

no pawprints

no fear

no water

no blood

no body

nobody

only.
