Presence

Ponder these questions…

What do you feel?

What do you see?

When you walk on the beach at night
And the moon is shining on the water
Filling your heart with yearning

            That is me.

When you’re driving down the road
And notice something strange
Something out of place that you don’t understand
Causing a break, a moment of doubt
In your mind

            That is me.

When you go about your normal life
Walking the same steps you’ve always known
And find a moment of clarity, when
A deep awareness and presence
Surprises you
Into a fuller self

            That is me.

If my words
Cause you fear or discomfort
Take that pain to your breast
Like a small lost child
And let love dissolve you,
Gently pulling away the veil of your misgivings

            That is me.
