Ruby looks out over her kingdom
Long faun-like legs drawn up like a pretzel
knobby knees poking out in opposite directions
She sits still and quiet at the top of the grassy slope
Looking toward the neighbor's house below
Does she notice the squirrel scampering up a nearby tree
tail twitching hypnotically  
Does she hear the squabbling birds
fluttering and bouncing from limb to limb
Does she smell the earthy sweetness of the freshly mown lawn
Perhaps she is deep in thought  
Contemplating the meaning of existence
Or the origins of the universe
Has she entered a deep meditative state
Found that quiet within
That point where her being becomes one with the world around
No borders no boundaries
No differentiation between dog, squirrel, or tree
Only atomic particles vibrating and dancing
