now

pause

there is nothing more essential

than what is

now

be here

be here fully

be here as love

present here in

this moment,

sacred

never to be

tasted, experienced

known again

here

with compassion

with what arises

as it arises

with what dissolves

as it dissolves

here

in the sanctuary of skin

you call this body

in this strand of moments

you call this precious life

brilliant spark that shines

in parentheses of

birth & death

dwell here

in the now

dwell here

in your heart

there is nowhere

more sacred than here
