Presence – Hear the Flow

At times I walk the trail
beside the Stream.
At times I’m off the path
down in the flow.
Still other times I’m on the wooded side
unseen, and not seeing.

I’ve come to know my steps
as both unique and shared.
Such consciousness holds me
in the place where now I am.

Now is good
it must be
it has to be
it’s all we have.

Joy in the unexpected is ours
but only if we are to such unfolding
open.

Presence is a flow
unceasing.

When by this Stream
held
on the trail beside, walking
in the trees unseen,
I hear the flow.

  2. Right on, my friend! I have always found it useful to illustrate one’s progress using rivers and paths…just something about the connection to such a natural environment that clears away the clutter of our tech-heavy, SUPER-stimulated daily experiences.
