FeeIing and listening to my body,

each part its own, but all together;

and sensing in my body as body,

and also standing apart and aware

of what’s there as curiosity about

what might emerge as new beings

evolve and then dissolve into flux.


Then scoping out in imagination’s

vision to the horizon, to the world

itself as material, as spiritual, built on

what is known through the intimate

senses, and in the minds that come

together to form this wondrous shape

to the totality of my shifting world.


Inward to the body and to the practice

as refuge that exists in this infinity

of moments lived now with gratitude for

each treasure that sits with the body

as insight and for each new chance to

live in interbeing with other creatures

that have the right to be in fullness.
