Before Our Eyes

——-

Slowly
a bud unfolds
to leaf

and the forest fills
with flower smells
and color.

“All of a sudden!”
you might say,
about the Spring.

But Rumi says, “Patience
with small details
makes perfect a large work…”

Let go of thinking
and all your senses
will disappear

into one,
ever-changing
season.

Making love in this emptiness
shows us how
to truly see.

This, is what the World is doing
right now
before our eyes.
