when nothing passes us by

Let us all practice

until we realize

that we are the presence

that is present.


I lost that connection a few times…

inquiry for today~ maybe a few more dreams…..

when life is kind

Across the years, my drift into understanding has been like a hawk descending in glide,

one spiral after another, until I have landed where flight is no longer necessary. 

And my breakdown into peace has been like a cliff standing up to the sea, until after all my suffer-ings,

I only long to join, until with each crumble, I utter, “Take me.” 

Now, my ability to give is ever increased by my acceptance of surrender,

like a dandelion finally giving way to the slightest gust of wind.
